The photography area within Ball State's School of Art is committed to teaching students how to work with photography's infinite creative possibilities and how to understand its artistic, social, and commercial applications.

Through traditional photographic avenues as well as newer ones involving digital technologies, photographic images are literally everywhere we look.

Faculty are intent on helping students acquire a strong technical foundation through introductory courses and then assisting them to mature as creative artists as they explore diverse photographic techniques and critical theories addressed in intermediate and advanced courses.
