Certificate of Completion
The Learning Center at HCP offers a Certificate of Completion based on the workflow and creative process in photography. Following the coursework, students learn how to capture, edit, process and present their photographs while learning how to enhance their photographic skills, creative processes, and presentation.
The Certificate of Completion includes completing a set 19 courses, taking 2 electives (from our regular educational calendar), passing written test between levels, and submitting a final portfolio review. In addition, students have the option to specialize their certificate by taking 4 additional classes in the specialized fields such as Alternative Processes, Fine Art, Landscape, Portraiture, and Business Practices. Electives in the same field of specialization can be applied towards it.
Students already enrolled in the certificate path can continue their studies following their Camera or Computer path, or apply the classes towards the new Certificate of Completion.
