Antonelli College Cincinnati campus now offers a shorter term Photography diploma program, which will provide students with the technical instruction required to enter a professional photography career.
Antonelli College is now offering a Diploma option to their Photography program at their downtown Cincinnati campus, located at 124 East 7th Street, Cincinnati, Ohio 45202. They are now accepting applications for the Photography diploma program. “We are now enrolling students for the diploma track which begins on January 5, 2015,” said Edward Rito, Campus President for Cincinnati Ohio campus of Antonelli College.
Antonelli College's Photography program currently offers an Associates Degree in Applied Business, which is designed to be completed within 19-24 months. The shorter-term diploma program will allow students to complete their photography courses in as little as 10 months. The main difference between the degree and diploma curriculum is that students enrolled in the diploma program will take minimal general education courses with a strong emphasis placed on the core photography courses.
The Photography diploma program prepares students for entry-level careers in commercial advertising photography, corporate photography, portrait and wedding photography, and as digital photography technicians. This program is a foundation of the Photography A.A.B. degree program. Students completing the diploma program will be able to apply all of the diploma program’s courses towards the degree program. The program also incorporates a capstone requirement of a Portfolio Presentation course, which will provide students with an opportunity to compile a comprehensive portfolio of their work, which demonstrates student proficiency in photography to future employers.
Photography Department Chair of Antonelli College, Andrea Millette professes, "It is an exciting new option at the Cincinnati campus of Antonelli College to be able to offer the Photography diploma program. As the Department Chair, I feel the Diploma program offers a very close technical second to the Associates Degree curriculum, allowing anyone who may already hold a degree from another institution to complete the technical and creative coursework and be prepared to work as a professional photographer. The diploma offering also offers the already established photographer a set of coursework to improve upon their existing skills without the need for general education courses slowing their progress. If an individual feels they are more concerned about time, they can complete the Diploma, and choose to continue on to complete the full degree after, as all classes are 100% transferrable to the Associates degree curriculum."
