Photography

This course enables students to develop their creative practice, knowledge and understanding and gain a broad theoretical understanding of the medium of photography. Students will establish a critically reflective practice through experimentation, creativity, risk-taking, research and authorship. Self-set projects and assignments, along with the collective breadth offered by the portfolio of exit awards, means students will graduate with an individually tailored award within a field of contemporary photography.

Entry requirements

A 2.1 degree or above in photography or a relevant subject. Appropriate professional experience or prior experiential learning will also be assessed on an individual basis. Applicants with an Honours degree in other disciplines, are welcome to apply with proposals that demonstrate an innovative approach to the use of their practice, in a critical context, within the field of their own specialism in relation to photography. Applicants will be required to attend an interview, bringing a portfolio of work. Accredited Prior Learning (APL) will not normally be considered as the programme is designed as a coherent whole.

Core modules: experiment and practice; project; photography, histories and criticism; photography, interdisciplinary practices and contexts; the practice of research. The modules shown for this course or programme are those being studied by current students, or expected new modules. Modules are subject to change depending on year of entry.
