Photography course at Arch
The course at Arch College of Design and Business is extraordinary in the methodology adopted to train its students. Be it narrative style or product photography, Arch’s pedagogy in this creative course encourages exploration and the incorporation of concept-based thinking to achieve significant visuals. Students are not restrained with age old standards and rules in place since the inception of photography. Students are prepared to go past their own restrictions in order to think more liberally. In the changed types that we offer, some have a substantial social relevance in the current situation, while the others work on unique digressions portraying symbolic upheavals and emotion in total harmony. With a particularly different openness, understudies wind up getting changed into neo age proficient photographic artists.
The course offered is a 3 year Bachelor of Arts in Photography where the students learn all the basics with classroom and real time projects in the first 2 years at the ARCH, Jaipur campus, and in the 3rd year goes abroad for the completion of the course and to get their degree. The student has a choice of a number of international universities to go to. And after that, the student can continue their studies further, if they wish, with a 1 year Masters program from the same university or any other of their choice.
