The Photography program (PHOT) at MCC teaches how to solve photographic problems through the skillful use of camera, lighting, laboratory and electronic techniques. Included are experiences in commercial, general and digital photography. Students learn contemporary and historic processes in the dark rooms and photo processing labs.

Photography students enter careers as freelancers or photojournalists, employed in commercial or portrait studios, industrial photo units, retail photo finishing and sales, working with digital imaging systems, or as manufacturer technical representatives.
