The Department of Photography & Imaging at Tisch offers a four-year B.F.A. program centered on the making and understanding of images. Students explore photo-based imagery as personal and cultural expression. Situated within a university, our program offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum and a serious and broad grounding in the liberal arts. We are a diverse department embracing multiple perspectives, and our 130 majors work in virtually all modes of analog and digital photo-based image making and multimedia.
Our faculty and staff consist of artists, professional photographers, designers, critics, historians, and scholars offering a wide range of perspectives. Alumni from the department pursue graduate degrees, exhibit their work in galleries and museums, publish in national newspapers and magazines, work as documentarians and picture editors, produce web sites and multimedia projects, and work in museums, educational and community settings.
