The Department of Photography is committed to the education of artist and professionals. The curriculum is designed to create a broad-based knowledge of photography from traditional photographic techniques to the digital darkroom, including aesthetics, history, and artistic and professional practice. The student moves from a highly structured program in the sophomore year to a more self-determined program in the senior year. The program culminates in an individual exhibition as well as a senior group show at a gallery in DUMBO, a center of contemporary art in New York City. Students leave Pratt having had the experience of curating, hanging, and promoting their own exhibit, in addition to a finished portfolio of their work. This approach is intended to facilitate the transition from student to independent artist/professional.
