Students of Photography & Imaging at Tisch learn how to see, think, and take risks while finding their own creative voice.

Centered on the making and understanding of images, this program offers students both the intensive focus of an arts curriculum while demanding a broad grounding in the liberal arts. Our department embraces multiple perspectives, with majors working in virtually all modes of analog and digital photo-based image making and multimedia.

As a Photography & Imaging major, you’ll work closely with faculty advisors to design a rigorous program of study that suits your passions and challenges you to expand your conceptual and technical boundaries. Alumni go on to publish in national newspapers and magazines, work in museums and community art, and become art critics, documentary photographers, photojournalists, filmmakers, and graphic designers.
