The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale is offering a new Bachelor of Science degree in Photography beginning in October 2007.
The Art Institute has offered photography associateâ€™s degree and a one-year diploma for many years but as the industry has evolved from print to a digital world, they have overhauled the program to meet the demand for knowledgeable and well-informed specialists.
â€œThis new program meets the demands of the industry for competent, skilled, and business savvy professionals,â€ says The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale Photography Program Chair Bill Cadieux.
Graduates of the new photography degree are prepared for entry-level positions such as photographic technician, photographer’s assistant, digital-imaging artist, product or still-life photographer, newspaper editorial photographer, or photo re-touch professional. They may work in studios, or advertising agencies, publishing houses, photo labs or production companies, newspapers and magazines, or as freelancers.
