It’s often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. At Brooks Institute, we take that maxim a step further with our belief that visual images lie at the center of how our culture perceives and communicates. Our Professional Photography program seeks to develop professional photographers who embody the role of both visual/media artist and communicator.

Through a comprehensive program of study that integrates practical methods and tools with our “learning by doing” philosophy, Brooks Institute’s photography degree programs are designed to help equip students with the skills, knowledge and confidence they need to succeed in today’s competitive photography environment.
