Dear Photography Students,
We thought you might want to know of some changes being made to our existing Photography Certificate programs.
Currently, we offer two programs; a 28-unit Certificate in Fundamentals of Photography (CF561) and a 20-unit Certificate in Advanced Topics in Photography (CF562).
Based on observation and several quarters of student and instructor feedback, we have decided to combine these certificates into one inclusive program, simply titled Certificate in Photography (CF598). This new 40-unit program will include beginning, intermediate and advanced level courses, to give all students a thorough technical and creative experience, and prepare them for a variety of professional situations.
To see the full curriculum and details for the new Certificate in Photography, click here.
We are excited to be debuting this updated program, and feel that it will offer a complete, inclusive experience. However, you may be in the process of taking courses with the expectation of joining one of the older programs. If, after reviewing the details of the new program, you prefer to enroll in either CF561 or CF562, you may do so through January 31st. After that date, those programs will be retired, and only the new Certificate in Photography (CF598) will be available.
Students who are already enrolled in either CF561 or CF562 are free to complete the curriculum that existed at the time of their candidacy declaration.
To enroll in Fundamentals of Photography, please call our registration office at (310) 825-9971 (online enrollment is not available), and reference “CF561.”
To enroll in Advanced Topics in Photography please call (310) 206-1422 to speak with an advisor. This certificate is restricted to those who have the appropriate experience and have completed a portfolio review.
Of course, students are always welcomed to take individual courses, and need not join a certificate program to study with us. This information is for those who are interested or have been considering pursuing a certificate, to keep you abreast of these changes.
Please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions.
