Lighting, believably is not a course offered at my university for this degree. It IS offered at a satellite campus 2 hours away for their BA in photo. that is geared more to magazine/studio work. The BFA program is more ‘artistic’ so any lighting studies are to be independent.

Well …  There’s a concept!  Photography is literally writing with light.  Being able to “see” light, and understanding light’s characteristics, how it works, is rather critical to good photography.  I wonder if this institution leaves the students working on paintings to do their own independent studies to figure out the differences between oil paints and acrylics?
