Photo-Cinema - B.A.

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Rosary College of Arts and Sciences

The photo-cinema major works in the creative space between the still photograph and motion picture, while asserting lens-based imagery remains fundamental to conducting one’s personal and professional life. Anchored in the art department, photo-cinema students build relationships with neighboring areas of study, including theatre and communications, mandating an interdisciplinary approach to the creative process. Students are trained to be versatile image-makers, conversant in a variety of screen and print media, while defining their own curricular emphasis and investigative method.

Art and Design Foundation Core

Visual literacy is at the heart of the foundation core. In a world of increased and accelerated visual imagery, with greater numbers of people having the resources to create their own images, it is important to be able to understand how images work, both psychologically and physiologically.

Foundation courses offer students the perceptual and technical knowledge required to effectively create and control their own images. Survey courses in art history set up a historical context for students’ own work and help lay the groundwork for further study in art history, theory, and criticism.

Prospective majors are advised to consult with a member of the art faculty in planning their program and to complete the foundation core as soon as possible.
