About the Photography/Media program
Make your vision happen. Offering a unique mix of photography and business training, this option will prepare you to start your own photography business or work in the artistic/visual communications field.
As a student of this option, you can expect active, project-based training in a broad range of photography types. You’ll get advanced training in photo editing and enhancement, learn how to effectively market/broadcast your work, and learn real-world application from visiting professional photographers. You will also complete an experience-building internship or final (capstone) project.
Please note: You will be required to purchase a professional quality camera. See Photography Tool List here.
How does an E-Degree work?
As a Photography/Media e-degree student, you’ll take online courses through Lake Area Tech’s eLearning system. The e-degree program offers an 18-month or 20-month option.
Why an E-Degree?
