Whether you need to update your skills to be more competitive in today's photography market, need more experience before committing to a career change, or are ready to follow your long-awaited dream of studying photography, there is no better place than ICP's Continuing Education Track Programs to embark on this creative endeavor.

Continuing Education Track is designed to help students develop their photographic vision and technical proficiency and to produce a strong body of work for the purpose of pursuing a degree or certificate program or the oppor- tunity to engage more seriously with their photographic practice, whether their motive is personal or professional. The program provides students with a faculty advisor and a strategic sequence of classes drawn from our Continuing Education offerings. Each cycle emphasizes skills, mastery, style, vision, technique, and critique. Our objective is to provide students with a flexible yet structured program that complements their specific goals and interests. The program consists of eight classes, including two core seminar classes, which are taught over the course of three consecutive terms. The faculty advisor/seminar leader develops the curriculum for the core seminar classes and assists students in defining a series of classes that best reflect their interests, personal direction, and goals. Upon completion of classes, each student receives a certificate of proficiency.

Tuition for the program is $8,000 + $1,000 Center fee. The Center fee provides access to facilities, and equipment rental. This program is open to 12-15 students who must be at Photo I level and demonstrate proficiency with their camera.
