Explore Art at MSU Denver:
Our Photography courses offer a wide range of photographic media featuring traditional film and darkroom techniques and state of the art digital technologies. A strong emphasis is placed on acquiring professional skills to establish a successful creative art practice.
Our curriculum encourages students to investigate contemporary trends while being informed by the inextricable historic links of the medium to modernity. Explore topics such as the photograph as evidence, document, memorial, snapshot, and advertisement. Students develop work through critical inquiry and explorations of the constantly evolving lens-based field.
Beginning courses build foundational skills, while advanced students engage in proposal-based creative projects that establish concept development, research methodology, and exhibition approaches.
MSU Denver’s strong ties to the professional art community and close proximity to galleries, museums, and other art institutions cultivate students’ experience in the field. Students are encouraged to participate in internships through the Applied Learning Center, which matches students’ skills and training to employers within the community.
