Academics . Photography + Video . Overview

Photography + Video

In CIA’s Photography + Video major, you’ll focus on either photographic or video arts as you develop a distinct vision, learn to communicate effectively, and immerse yourself in a creative, collaborative environment. Coursework will expose you to rich and varied techniques and aesthetics essential to photography, video, and digital cinema. Whether you’re interested in still or moving images, you’ll learn how to refine and communicate your artistic vision through lectures, demonstrations, assignments, critiques, and group or one-on-one discussions with instructors and visiting artists. In the process, you’ll gain knowledge of photographic theory and contemporary practices.

You’ll benefit from the expertise of a diverse, professionally experienced, and committed faculty and you’ll work with an array of state-of-the-art photographic and video imaging equipment.

Engage in all phases of the photographic workflow from image capture, lighting and editing, to image processing, enhancement, manipulation, and use of special effects and alternative photo imaging processes. You’ll explore different media for image output, presentation options, and professional standards for photographic and digital media archiving.

If you choose the video track within the photography + video major, you’ll learn professional-level skills in time-based narratives, digital cinema, sound, motion, and sequence-generated content. Video courses will introduce you to innovative production technologies in the following areas: animation, film, sound and video production, lighting, and photography. Harness traditional and digital technologies to create narrative and experimental video work, which focuses on both fine art and industry standards of production.

We’ll encourage you to participate in exchange programs, international mobility studies, and internships in both fine art and commercial venues. You’ll have opportunities to attend onsite workshops and lectures sponsored by film and camera companies and by organizations such as MAC Group, Society for Photographic Education and the American Society of Media Photographers. We also work closely with the Cleveland Museum of Art and Museum of Contemporary Art to bring in professional artists, critics, writers, collectors, curators, and museum and gallery directors to share ideas and critique portfolios.
