Photography

This programme involves experimenting with new photographic processes and exploring photography as a tool to engage and stimulate social thinking. While the photographic image remains fundamental to your study, the focus of this programme is social, cultural and political. To support each student's ongoing practice in photographic exhibition and scholarly research, the course includes seminars on cultural, media and philosophical theory, talks by visiting practitioners, group debates about different methodologies and workshops on photographic technique.

Entry requirements

Applicants will have either a 2.1 Honours degree or suitable, relevant experience. We welcome students from a multiplicity of backgrounds, meaning that these qualifications and professional experiences need not have been gained in the field of photography. All applicants will be interested in developing a portfolio of critically informed work that extends beyond the traditions of the still image and intersects with other time-based or interactive media practices. International students will require English language at IELTS 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in each element, or equivalent.

Course modules

Modules include: media ecologies 1; media ecologies 2; photographic practice 1; photographic practice 2; advanced photographic practice 3; rethinking society for the 21st century. Optional modules include: human and inhuman in the 21st century; media industries.

Assessment methods

The various modules will be assessed through production projects/portfolios/exhibitions, presentations, production research with critical evaluation and essays.
