This program is offered by UCF at the Daytona Beach Campus. Photography is also available as an area of concentration on the Orlando campus through the School of Visual Arts and Design (SVAD) as part of the Art, Studio Track (B.A.) and Studio Art (B.F.A.) programs. The School of Visual Arts and Design affirms that a theoretical and working understanding of the historical meanings and studio applications of the human image are critical in the education of Visual Art and Art History students. To develop such an understanding, school courses often utilize images of clothed and unclothed human figures and, in certain studio classes, live nude models.
