Overview

About the Program

As members of a diverse metropolitan community with a long history of institutional support for photography, we are committed to making and studying creative works in an environment that promotes civil discourse, self-awareness and student success. Through student-driven research and concentrated studio time our students actively engage in technical and conceptual experimentation and interdisciplinary investigation.

The Photography - Digital Media program of the University of Houston is recognized for its comprehensive approach to creative lens, media and time-based artwork. This 3-year program has a very strong traditional fine art photography component, but is also one of the first university photography programs in the country to include digital media as an integral part of its curriculum. Aesthetic diversity and the development of individual artistic vision are emphasized and discussed in regular individual critiques and as a part of the group dialog in a seminar offered each semester.

Graduate students are provided with their own studio spaces within a studio complex equipped with shared Mac workstations for scanning and printing to Epson 7800 and 4900 printers. In addition, students have broad access to medium and large format cameras, DV/HD video equipment, well-equipped wet lab and studio facilities, and also eligible to have individual black and white enlarger suites of their own.

Houston is a great city for photography. The collection at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (MFAH) is world-class and the basis for regular exhibitions. The Houston Center for Photography and numerous commercial galleries exhibit photography and media on a regular basis. and numerous commercial galleries exhibit photography and media on a regular basis.  Additionally, every two years the entire city focuses on photography for Houston’s Fotofest.  During this bi-annual conference, photography enthusiasts flock from around the world to see exhibitions, share their portfolios and attend lectures.
