About

Photography at California State University Long Beach emphasizes fine art photography and its central position in contemporary art practice. The program is also invested in both traditional and digital photographic applications.

Overview

The Bachelor of Fine Arts degree is offered for the student eventually seeking a Master of Fine Arts degree, the position of a professional artist or designer, and for teaching studio art within a selected specialization.

The extensive course offerings at California State University Long Beach include such topics as advanced black-and-white printing, color photography, digital photography, studio practices, a theory and criticism seminar, experimental approaches, and Special Studies in Art Photography, a senior level in photo-based art making.

Features

Independent Studies are also available, allowing for students to work independently under the supervision of one of the professors in photography, who are all working artists with extensive resumes and experience.

The Program is enriched by the Department's distinguished guest artist and speaker program, its on campus art museum, its excellent student art galleries, and its proximity to the many museums and galleries in the greater Los Angeles area.
