    Wondering if anyone has any personal experience or knowledge in Universities that offer photography as an undergraduate major, with good programs?

    Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated.

    Was referring to U.S. Universities, should have clarified that.

    If there are any UK Universities you would like to suggest, I would be more than willing to check those out as well. Thanks

    In Australia, just for reference for anyone:

    Best is probably RMIT in Melbourne, offering a BA in photography and potentially a postgrad as well.

    There's also others like PSC, etc... but RMIT is probably the best.

    If you interested in studying in the UK, which I recommend hugely. Because it will offer a completely new culture experience, as well as being cheap.

    The UK has a application system called UCAS, this is a list of all the Universitys and Courses, I searched Photography and came up with this - http://search.ucas.com/cgi-bin/hsru...whereNext?query=530&word=PHOTOGRAPHY&single=N

    Bournemouth is a fantastic University with great Night Light and a very good reputation (for a "newer" uni)

    If your interested in having a more course specific break down, look at this http://search.ucas.com/cgi-bin/hsru...rdSearch.whereNext?query=530&word=PHOTOGRAPHY

    If you really are considering applying to the UK, will need to sign up and to do that you will have to talk to your school. I'd also like to add you have missed the dead-line this year so you will have to apply next year.

    Best of Luck with whatever you decide!

    Syracuse University S.I. Newhouse has a great program (Thats where I went to) But its not easy to get accepted it very competitive to get in.
