In fall 2012, Crowder College began offering an Associate of Arts photography degree for those delving into this field as a career. There are several vocational options including photojournalism, fine arts, and commercial photography, which includes weddings, portraits, and product photography.

Crowder’s classes offer hands-on practice with cameras and other equipment, Adobe PhotoShop software, and a studio.

A digital single-lens reflex manual camera is required for Photo I and II. Students should also have a basic understanding of computer functions prior to enrolling.

Typically, Photo I is offered at the Neosho campus in the fall, spring, and summer semesters. Photo II is offered at least once a year in Neosho. There’s a rotating schedule of courses offered at the Webb City, Cassville, and Nevada campuses.
