Guess what? Pretty much every one of the hundreds of graduates of that program, as well as those from a similar program at Rochester Institute of Technology, saw their jobs become obsolete over a period of just a few years. We never thought it would happen, either.
Having had the technological rug yanked out from under me at least a dozen times in my life, I can sympathize. But somehow I always thought my lovely mistresses Silver Halide and the Fine Art Print would stay beautiful forever. Woe unto me.
From back when I was reading science fiction I can not recall a single story that anticipated digital photography, much less as a fine art medium. And that includes the time period well after Ansel Adams had predicted the advent of electronic imaging in the early 80's.
I do recall several several fictional extrapolations of chemical technology become futuristic. Mini-desktop chemical machines could to be used for rapid film development. These were push-button machines, you could even erase pictures you didn't like by pressing a button that would rewind the film back into the bleach tank. Or push a button and out pops a print.
But electronic devices as the premiere image display medium seems like a sure bet, except doubtlessly of a character and with implications nobody here has thought of, yet.
But if I can just squeeze another ten years out of my inky Epsons, I'll be happy. You kids will have to carry on after that, and BTW don't ever get to feeling comfortable with the status quo.
