The Photography program develops professional image-makers through student-centered inquiry and practice in visual communication. Studies in Photography encompass the history, critical and aesthetic theory and varied practices of photography as a medium of visual communication and expression in a diverse cultural society. Students explore a variety of photographic formats, including 35mm, medium format and 4x5 view cameras and acquire experience in black-and-white, color, alternative and digital imaging processes using state of the art methods, tools and facilities. The Associate of Fine Arts Degree will prepare students to transfer into a 4 year Bachelor of Fine Arts program. Students will be provided with all foundation-level studio courses with a primary concentration in photography. First-year requirements must be satisfied before beginning second-year course work.
Any remediation in Reading, English or Mathematics must be completed before beginning third semester courses.
The degree Associate in Fine Arts is awarded upon successful completion of the photography course sequence with a grade of “C” (2.0 GPA) or better in all ART courses. ART courses with a grade lower than “C” must be repeated.
Upon successful completion of this program, students should be able to:
- Demonstrate proficiency with camera skills sufficient to produce consistent quality photographic imagery.
- Demonstrate advanced skills in materials and processes used in photography.
- Demonstrate a general knowledge of the history of photography from the 19th century to present day and its function in visual culture in the context of global art.
- Demonstrate knowledge of the elements and principles of two and three dimensional design, color theory, drawing and art historical references.
- Practice critical thinking skills through the production and evaluation of artwork.
- Produce a portfolio demonstrating a coherent personal vision and visual literacy.
The College Transfer Office is set up to help Delaware County Community College students transfer to four-year colleges and universities. If you are planning to transfer, you are strongly encouraged to meet with a transfer advisor within your first two semesters (or before you reach 30 transferable college credits from all institutions attended).
