The MFA in Photography at Georgia State University is concerned with teaching students to think and work as professional artists.
The Graduate Photography Program provides a critical and conceptual grounding for students as they independently pursue their studio practice. The weekly seminar serves as the backbone of the program. Critical theory is stressed while critique forms the basis for dialogue about ongoing work. Students are encouraged to look beyond established photographic conventions and to push their work in new directions. Creative investigation across disciplines is avidly supported and results in students working in mixed media, video, digital, installation, performance, and conventional photographic print media. Guest critics and guest artists are invited to final critiques to supplement the expertise of the faculty. Students are given the opportunity to teach foundation and introductory photography courses and to work in photography and digital labs so they may gain necessary skills for a profession in teaching, should they choose.
The primary objective of the graduate program is to provide students with the analytical and critical tools to effectively shape their own practices once leaving the program.
