Studying Photography develops an independent practice, which ultimately leads to the final year degree show. You will present a body of work, which has emerged as a result of sustained practice and research, and have the opportunity to explore photography’s multiple forms including art, documentary and publishing. Critical approaches to other areas including fashion and editorial practices are also supported. The history and theory of the subject also underpins the course as you investigate photography’s different contexts.
If you are interested in studying Photography as part-time you will have six years to complete the course. This provides you with two years to complete the modules required for each year of study. The minimum amount you can study in one year is 20 credits per year and the maximum is 100 credits.
Why Study Photography with us?
The course embraces all forms of photography, but we encourage you to develop a critical and independent practice, which addresses contemporary practice and contexts, as well as the history and theory of the medium and subject.
You are introduced to extended forms of practice including the photobook, moving image as well as new and mixed media and installation possibilities.
The course invites photographers from the art world and industry to share their experiences in lectures tutorials and workshops. The teaching staff, including guest and visiting lecturers, are also established practitioners.
