About rccphotoschool

Randolph Community College has worked for over 45 years to develop a state-of-the-art, two year photographic curriculum that now attracts students from across the country and the world. Boasting a multimillion dollar, 35,000-square-foot photographic education facility and five full-time faculty/staff and three adjunct instructors, we serve up to 140 students annually. Encompassing the latest digital and multimedia technology, our curriculum builds from a foundation of traditional film and darkroom techniques. Our students enjoy nationwide, hands-on internship opportunities which can lead to careers in a variety of professional disciplines. After completing their foundation year students choose a second year in one of three concentrations areas: Portrait Studio Management, Photojournalism, and Commercial Photography. Our national reputation for excellence and value have been earned by a commitment to the very best in photographic education.
