Do you see the world differently? Our MA Photography course promotes innovation and experimentation, supporting you to develop your own distinctive creative vision as a photographic practitioner.
The course examines strategies to resolve projects into substantial outputs such as publications, exhibitions and digital platforms, and emphasises the need to find an audience as being integral to a sustained and successful practice.
Through a research-based investigation using photographic practices, you’ll consider the cultural and ethical uses of the medium within a range of genres and approaches. You will develop skills for analysis and critical evaluation, as well as professional know-how to engage with the wider photographic community and industry.
You’ll be able to attend talks by a diverse range of international industry speakers, with recent guests including Joy Gregory, Mariela Sancari, Amani Willett, Bolade Banjo, Cécile Poimboeuf-Koizumi and Amak Mahmoodian.
Our postgraduate courses are transdisciplinary and underpinned by independent learning. You will be supported with a variety of teaching and learning methods, including individual supervision, group tutorials, live briefs and project proposals, as well as being encouraged to collaborate with students from other postgraduate courses.
Our academic staff are engaged in contemporary practice in their specialism and will support, encourage and challenge you during your studies. You will be taught in a vibrant and bespoke postgraduate suite. All postgraduate students are taught together in research methods and business-related modules.
