You don't think in terms of boundaries and neither do we. We know that success in the creative arts requires collaboration with other media, approaches and considerations. As a UArts Photography student, you’ll have the freedom to study photography in as many different ways as you want: fine art, editorial, fashion, commercial, documentary, photo-journalism, studio practice and more.

You'll be able to work in both digital and traditional formats, with access to the program's full range of techniques, facilities and media tools — the same top-of-the-line stuff the pros use — to create your own artistic vision while developing solid technical competency. Our unique visiting artist and speaker series bring top photographers, curators, photo editors and gallery directors to the University, where you can meet them one-on-one. You'll take regular trips to NYC for gallery visits and major industry expos. And you'll also have the chance to showcase your work in our own Gallery 1401, the only endowed student photography gallery in Philadelphia.

Through our internship program, students apply their knowledge in various studios, galleries and production houses in the city and beyond. And you'll work on real-world projects for outside companies and institutions — in one project, students shot all of the photographs for the annual report of one of Philadelphia’s major museums, the Academy of Natural Sciences.
