From Alison Zavos’ interview with Henry Horenstein:

AZ: There has been a lot of talk about whether a degree in photography is worth the expense these days. As a photography Professor at the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD), why is it important to have a photography degree and how are the students being prepared for the intense competition that they will face after graduation?

HH: I’m not sure a degree is necessary, per se. But the education you get—creative and technical—along with the people you meet make it a good thing. It’s training for a career and the beginning of a community of artists (graphic designers and others, not just photographers) who might be an important part of your creative career.
