The objective of this three-year program is to provide students with professional training in t photography and video production to meet the current needs of the global labor market. In the first year, students will build a technical-theoretical foundation in the various types of photography, which will be expanded upon in the second year, during which students will begin to develop their own artistic language. In the last phase, students will concentrate on the development of their portfolios and professional profiles.

The Bachelor's degree in Photography and New Media is an artistic course of study at the university level that offers practical experience as well as cultural and technical knowledge that students apply to various areas of photography, from fashion to still life and from photojournalism to photo shoots in the studio and outdoors.
Students will graduate with the professional skills required to work with images on a global level, the knowledge to work on integrated and complex projects and specific technical expertise for various sectors: fashion, advertising, journalism, sports and publishing.
Students work in the Accademia's laboratories in individual and group projects under the guidance of professors who are specialists in the field.
During the program's three years, students are invited to participate in exhibitions, conferences and workshops. Interdisciplinary projects that involve the Fashion Design and Interior and Product Design departments are encouraged. 
The driving philosophy of the program is one of global experimentation with visual languages and techniques to prepare students to enter the working world not only as photographers but as creative workers who know how to communicate with images and who can respond in an individual way to the needs of a society and market in continuous evolution.
