One of the first graduate programs to incorporate digital practice, MFA Photography, Video and Related Media at SVA is dedicated to the creative practice of both traditional and digital lens-based arts, and to the integration of new theories, contexts and techniques of these ever-evolving media. Emphasizing the expansion of the photographic vocabulary, the department encourages students to challenge the current boundaries of their media, and to look at the ways in which design, video, social media, telecommunications and other electronic components are affecting contemporary work in the field.
