Course Summary

Course overview Enhance your skills, broaden your scope and refine your style as a photographer on our MA Photography degree course at UCA Canterbury. This course will encourage you to be bold, both in your work and the way in which you display it. You will be encouraged to speculate, experiment and add complexity to your projects, using our extensive facilities to help you realise your ideas. We also focus on the dissemination, exhibition and publication of photographic work, as well as covering critical theory and reading and writing about the image. With a balance of support that will develop your practical skills and foster a high standard of diverse critical approaches, you will respond to the diverse field of contemporary photography and explore practices of representation that engage with the still and moving image, as well as performance and installation. Your studies will be supported by a number of internationally renowned staff in a department that encourages experimentation. This will help you to establish yourself as a rounded professional who can formulate ideas in a sophisticated framework, whilst also communicating impactfully with others, both visually and verbally. Wherever your career aspirations lie - from fashion to fine art, editorial to curation - we place a strong emphasis on publication, empowering you to find creative ways to disseminate your work beyond the academic context;


This unit introduces you to a range of research methods and tools appropriate to an advanced level of study in creative disciplines, as well as outlining key issues and debates in contemporary visual and material culture. It is designed to enable the use of advanced study skills to prepare students for the development of your MA project.
