Photo student

Photography students study photography as fine art with an emphasis on the history of photography and the body of criticism surrounding the medium, as well as the development of their own personal vision and experimentation in the studio.

Degree Programs

Photography BFA

The curriculum introduces students to both analog and digital production, and offers a wide variety of elective courses providing a strong foundation for critical thinking, collaboration, and a career in photographic arts.

Graduate Programs in Photography

MassArt's 60 credit, full-time MFA: Media Arts (Photography) program guides students through extensive study of the history and current practice of photography, critical theory, and the contemporary multi-disciplinary environment. The intensive Post-Baccalaureate Certificate Program in Photography is a full-time, one-year course of study for aspiring photographers seeking an advanced level of discourse, both technical and theoretical, about the medium as contemporary practice.

Featured Faculty

A highly respected group of artists form the core faculty of the department, including Barbara Bosworth, Anna Collette, Matthew Connors, Kathya Landeros, Laura McPhee, Matthew Monteith, Amani Willett, and Abelardo Morell (emeritus). Their efforts are augmented by a remarkable group of visiting professors. We are proud of our diverse and well-recognized faculty and staff, many of whom have received prestigious fellowships and publish and exhibit worldwide.
