Congrats to the #RITphoto community including students, alumni, faculty and staff! Because of the vitality and diversity of our rich educational environment, #ritphoto was recently recognized for a couple of important honors.
- The MFA program in Imaging Arts received a #4 ranking in the category of Best Graduate Schools for Photography from the newly released US News & World Report’s 2017 Edition. This top five ranking represents two steps up for the MFA program, previously ranked #6. Best Graduate School rankings are based solely on a peer assessment survey of 229 Master of Fine Arts programs in art and design in the United States.
- Photo District News’ PDNEDU showcased #RITphoto’s advertising program in its most recent edition. The program was one of three educational programs featured with a concentration in commercial photography. The article highlighted the advertising program’s innovative curriculum, internship opportunities, faculty and alumni, and included an interview with program chair, Susan Lakin.
#RITphoto is thrilled by the recognition from peer acknowledgements and salute the impressive work of its students, alumni, faculty and staff who give definition to the School’s great reputation in the field each and every day!
