Photography

Bachelor of Science: 180.0 quarter credits

About the Program

The photography curriculum is designed to provide the basis for both technical and aesthetic proficiency. Through a hands-on program blending traditional processes with the latest digital technologies, the photography curriculum provides all the tools necessary for aspiring artists/photographers to achieve a breadth of experience not generally developed in traditional fine art or commercial photography programs.

The photography major provides students with a unified fine arts/professional curriculum offering a wide range of studio, real-world, and academic experiences—intermixed with ongoing critiques and evaluation—including the studio, the darkroom, and the computer. The major prepares students to understand photography as a system of visual communication with its foundation in an ever-changing technology. Graduates may be employed in a variety of photo-related businesses, initiate their own photographic enterprises, or choose to go on to advanced studies.

The College's extensive photographic facilities are available to every photography major at Drexel. Incoming students are only required to bring a 35mm film camera that can be used on a manual setting.

Writing-Intensive Course Requirements

In order to graduate, all students must pass three writing-intensive courses after their freshman year. Two writing-intensive courses must be in a student's major. The third can be in any discipline. Students are advised to take one writing-intensive class each year, beginning with the sophomore year, and to avoid “clustering” these courses near the end of their matriculation. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.

A "WI" next to a course in this catalog may indicate that this course can fulfill a writing-intensive requirement. For the most up-to-date list of writing-intensive courses being offered, students should check the Writing Intensive Course List at the University Writing Center. Students scheduling their courses can also conduct a search for courses with the attribute "WI" to bring up a list of all writing-intensive courses available that term. Transfer students need to meet with an academic advisor to review the number of writing-intensive courses required to graduate.
