    This is actually a very good question that I don't have the answer to. I do know from experience that Photoshop and other digital manipulation software is very complex. It certainly could not be mastered in a day and I wouldn't really be surprized if it did indeed take a semester to gain more than a rudimentry knowledge of what the program can do and be able to create anything original.

    I'll ask my son about his digital classwork and get back to you!

    "I hope this is considered the correct thread for this question. I am currently involved in restructuring a BFA photography program within a fine arts department."

    Here's what I'd like in a BFA Photo program...

    With an attempt to degreeify my photo education on the horizon, I find myself somewhat disappointed with the description of any fine art photo program description I find here in the North Texas area.

    If I could just fabricate my own program, here's the broad strokes of what I'd like:
    • Context
      • art history
      • psychology, sociology, philosophy
        (your basic liberal arts social cluster...)
      • history of photography
    • Visualization and Exposure
      • The Portrait
      • Documentary and editorial photography
      • Architectural photography
      • Product and still life
      • Landscape / Environmental photography
    • Processing
      • material composition and darkroom chemistry
      • film processing techniques and sensitometry
      • film toning and retouching
      • Enlarging
      • Contact printing
      • alt processes
      • digital workflow
    • Post-Processing
      • print retouching and toning
      • mounting, matting, framing and archival storage
    • How to get work and what to do with it when you get it
      • Shooting for/dealing with publications
      • " Galleries
      • Marketing
      • Business essentials
      • Finding and getting grants
    • Photo law
    ...of course, if someone in the North Texas Contingent recognizes this as the program at institution X, boy howdy, let me know.
