Becoming a successful photographer is easier said than done. While there is always a select few who seem to effortlessly master the medium, for most of us it requires dedication, work and education. But with a variety of photography programs across the U.S., choosing the one that’s right for you can be tedious. And with such high tuition costs—not to mention rising student loan rates—it’s probably best to get it right the first time. So, we’ve narrowed it down to t15 college and university photography programs in the U.S that we felt stood out to help you better make your choice.



15. Virginia Commonwealth University 

Students in this program are taught technical and artistic skills to begin their careers as professional artists, multimedia specialists and editorial or commercial photographers. With a fairly wide range of concentration areas, this program places a great deal of emphasis on individual artistic expression. The university offers BFA and MFA degrees, while the graduate program was ranked 4th among public programs for photography.

What do the different settings do? What accessories do you need? How can you improve your skills?
