Photo & Social Engagement

Photo & Social Engagement

 

The Photography & Social Engagement concentration seeks to address social challenges in the world through photographic communication. By making connections between their studio practice as photographers and their academic studies, students will gain a broader understanding of their photographic subjects in a local, national and global context. As socially engaged Christians in an image-driven culture, graduates will be prepared to embark on visual art and design careers within ministry, church and nonprofit sectors as collaborators, storytellers and documentarians behind the camera.
