The University of Central Florida's Bachelors of Science in Photography degree program offers students a balanced photographic education by incorporating strong technical, creative, and critical skills that empower our graduates for life long success in a variety of professional photographic fields. Students have the opportunity to work with a diverse professional faculty in an environment that encourages excellence and innovative approaches to photography that will position graduates to compete in a rapidly changing industry.
UCF's Bachelor of Science in Photography degree is a collaborative program, a 2+2 agreement, with Daytona State College. Florida's 2+2 programs allow students coming out of the state colleges to merge directly into their upperdivision years at the university level. Students who have completed the A.S. in Photographic Technology degree from DSC are automatically admitted into the photography program at UCF. Graduates from other A.S. in Photography degree programs or those having the appropriate first and second year photography courses are considered on a casebycase basis.
UCF's Bachelor of Science in Photography degree builds upon the strong technical foundations achieved in an A.S. degree program through advanced studies in studio and digital methodologies, editorial and narrative, aesthetics, the history and theories of photography and the application of all of those considerations towards creating bodies of work that a graduate can use as a steppingstone to various avenues of image creation. The studies offered at UCF help to provide students with the opportunity to further explore their creative potential.
The B.S. in Photography degree program is located on the UCF Eastern Region campus at Daytona State College (see campus map) and is part of the School of Visual Arts & Design in the College of Arts & Humanities. The photography department, located in building number 530, contains two floors of state of the art studio, computer, darkroom, and classroom facilities. In addition, the Southeast Museum of Photography is also located on campus. The two schools and the museum are known as the Southeast Center for Photographic Studies.
