it also depends on what your goal is?

just to advance as a serious hobbist, or a professional?. I don't know about NYI, but for instances, the Altanta Art Institute in photography is basically digital. SCAC does a variety of film techniques as well as Ga. State (or at least they did)

IMHO, if your looking down the professional avenue, study business management, pr promotion, etc. Those skills can make an adverage photographer and the lack of can take a talent one to the bottom of the heap.
