The course, "Exploring Digital Photography,"
The instructor is Alexis Pike, an Assistant Professor of Photography at Montana State University. She teaches courses in the School of Film & Photography, ranging from Introduction to Color Photography, Advanced Studio Lighting, Professional Practices, and Senior Photography Seminar. She received her BFA degree from Boise State University in Idaho and her MFA degree from the University of Iowa, with departmental honors. Pike has exhibited work at a variety of distinguished venues and her photographs are included in several public collections. Her research is inspired by the landscape of the west—she is a sixth generation Idahoan who calls on the geography of her genes for inspiration.
The course offers three undergraduate credits, but is also open to anyone interested in the topic; even students who are not enrolled in an MSU program of study. The course also applies toward MSU's online bachelor's degree completion program. This flexible program helps students with an associate's degree or 60 or more college credits complete a bachelor's degree in Liberal Studies from Montana State University online.
