Online Certificate Program for Teens

This online certificate program is specifically designed for teens, ages 12-18. No experience is necessary to enroll. The program is rolling, meaning students can enroll at any time in the calendar year. Six classes are required to earn the certificate (four required and two electives). The program must be completed within one year over three terms – Winter/Spring, Summer, Fall. Classes are retroactive over one past term. (For example, if a student takes a class in the Summer term, that class can be applied toward the certificate in the Fall term.)

Students completing the program will receive a certificate issued by the Los Angeles Center of Photography.

1. Beginning Photography 1 (offered once each term)
2. Beginning Photography 2 (offered once each term)
3. Intermediate Photography 1 (offered once each term)
