Biography:

Mr. Griffith is an assistant professor of art in the Department of Art, Fine Art, Art Education & Art History. He began teaching photography at the Mount in 1981. Professor Griffith earned a M.Ed. in Instructional Technology and Design from AIU and a B.S. in Photographic Imaging from the Rochester Institute of Technology.

Professor Griffith heads the BFA photography concentration teaching thirteen different course titles. His teaching philosophy revolves around the idea that "teaching is a way of living." This philosophy is reflected in each of his courses, as shown in his current course syllabi.
