Full-Time Programs at the International Center of Photography

One-Year Certificate Programs: Documentary Photography and Photojournalism
General Studies in Photography
Application Deadline: Friday, March 9, 2012



The International Center of Photography (ICP) brings together people from around the world to explore the possibilities of the visual image. ICP embraces photography from historical to contemporary and from photojournalism to fine art—making the School at ICP a preeminent educational environment with unparalleled resources.

ICP offers two One-Year Certificate Programs, one in General Studies and one in Documentary Photography and Photojournalism. These Programs provide advanced students with an intensive yearlong course of study that strengthens personal vision, teaches professional practices, and explores the many disciplines that inform media and art today. The year culminates in a final student exhibition in the School’s Education Gallery. For students who wish to take their practice to the next level, this is a wonderful opportunity to build a portfolio for editorial work, gallery exhibition, or entry to graduate school.

“The students in ICP’s full-time programs form a core within our photographic community. They are essential to our institution; from them, we learn what is new and pressing in our field. As collaborators in the exploration of photography we are attentive to the ways that we can learn from their experiences while we challenge, argue, and interrogate the meaning, place, and role of photography in the world.” Phillip S. Block, Deputy Director for Programs, Director of Education

“Understanding photography is essential because its history is inseparable from the other social, political, and cultural forces that shape our world. Our medium is always being redefined by us, its practitioners. Photography can never be fully contained or categorized, but it can be made, discussed, contextualized, exhibited, taught, and collected.” Marina Berio, Chair, General Studies in Photography

“The facility to read and understand images is as crucial to literacy as a familiarity with text and forms of narrative…Photojournalism has never been more relevant and ubiquitous than now. In today’s global digital marketplace, images are devoured and spewed as fast as they can be uploaded.” Alison Morley, Chair, Documentary Photography and Photojournalism
