Photography (502), Associate of Applied Science Degree


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

Purpose: The photography curriculum provides a broad foundation in photographic techniques and approaches. Students are introduced to fine art, commercial, retail, and photojournalistic fields of photography. From the darkroom to the digital electronic darkroom, students are exposed to all aspects including large format photography, studio lighting, alternative processes, and portfolio preparation. The photography program at Thomas Nelson Community College is one of the few in the state that offers a film darkroom and processing room for traditional black and white film and print processing. The program is designed to prepare students for the photographic job market.

Transfer: Applied degrees (AAS/AAA) are designed to prepare students for entry into the workforce. Under formal articulation agreements with some four-year colleges and universities, students enrolled in a career/technical program who wish to pursue baccalaureate studies may be able to transfer selected courses into related programs at senior institutions. Students interested in pursuing transfer options should consult with a Thomas Nelson advisor early in their academic career and consult the transfer guide for their intended transfer institution and major.

♦ Course requires pre/co-requisites.
