Photography and Printmaking combines two rapidly evolving domains with fine arts and commercial applications. This concentration combines the traditional forms of both photography and printmaking with the more contemporary digital applications which keep these areas current in the field. Printmaking techniques include screen printing and relief techniques, while photography teaches both darkroom and digital formats.
