Course Summary

This photography course promotes innovation and experimentation. Through an examination of contemporary photographic practices you will learn to contextualise cultural and ethical uses of photography within a range of different photographic genres. The course will examine strategies to resolve projects into different outputs such as publications, exhibitions and digital platforms, as well as emphasising the need to find an audience as being integral to a sustained and successful practice. There will be opportunities for external visits and the chance to attend events such as the Unseen in Amsterdam, Photo Paris and Photo London in order to enable engagement with the wider photographic community and industry.

MA Photography students are able to access professional standard digital print facilities (including film scanning) and fully rigged lighting studios by arrangement on one evening per week and on Saturdays during the standard academic year. Based in our postgraduate hub, students will have access to a range of resources to support their learning. These include open access to our library and general computer suites which are equipped with up to date industry standard software related to creative practices. We embrace a post studio culture in our postgraduate teaching. This encourages our graduates to sustain a practice. We therefore expect postgraduate students to have access to their own studios or workspaces.
