The Drexel University Photography program teaches students how to develop a unique photographic vision using a combination of aesthetics and technology. Using both applied and theoretical teaching methods and blending traditional processes with current digital technologies, the photography curriculum provides aspiring photographers with the breadth of experience and knowledge required to succeed in today’s marketplace. The photography foundation courses are the same for each student until their third year, at which point they design a custom path of study that culminates in their senior thesis portfolio. Our alumni’s achievements reflect the diversity built into our program. They own successful photography studios, teach in high school and college programs, serve as curators, work as magazine photo editors and operate their own digital illustration firms.
