Photography (Liberal Studies)

Photography (Liberal Studies)

The Photography option will be transitioning from Mass Communications program to Liberal Studies program falling within the Art department beginning Fall 2014 to better meet the needs of our students and the four-year universities.

Within Rose State College‚Äôs art program, students of photography have opportunities to focus their artistic pursuits specifically on photographic arts.  Students in the photography program are fully prepared to transfer to a four-year art degree program.


The goal of the Photography option in the Associate of Arts degree in Liberal Studies is to prepare students to transfer to a four-year college or university to pursue a degree in photography or art.

The program includes Rose State College degree requirements and courses generally completed in the first two years of a four-year photography curriculum. It conforms to the articulation agreement among state of Oklahoma two-year and four-year institutions of higher education.

Graduates of the Photograph option will be able to do the following:

  • Demonstrate basic principles of photography, including manual and digital camera controls, exposure controls, film, flash, and composition.
  • Use various developers, films, and papers for unusual effects.
  • Develop and emphasize individual skills and interest in a visually and expressive manner.
  • Discuss the development of the visual arts in Western Culture.
  • Communicate a general analysis of artwork orally and in writing.

Students in the program must complete courses listed in Program Requirements and Support and Related Requirements sections with a minimum grade of "C" in each course in order to receive the Associate in Arts degree. Students should consult the four-year institution to which they are planning to transfer and carefully select courses that will meet requirements for the baccalaureate degree program.   Degree requirements (PDF)
