Course summary

MA Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies is a fine art photography course which merges research with practice. The course is rooted in the idea that photography has no self-limiting identity or essence. Creating visually exciting and intellectually compelling work, you will develop as an artist with photography at the core of your practice.

Why choose this course at Central Saint Martins

Transdisciplinary practice: On this course, you will study photography as an interlacing of fine art, technology, aesthetics and new media. You will explore the effects of digital cultures on art practice, the everyday and the environment.

Visiting practitioners: The course has an extensive visiting lecturer programme, including leading artists, philosophers and curators.

State-of-the-art equipment: You will have access to advanced equipment for scanning, large-format digital color and chemical black and white printing.

Curatorial projects: The course offers opportunities for you to take part in group curatorial projects, in which you will learn to curate in a shared space.

Our postgraduate Art Programme offers valuable opportunities to build transferable professional knowledge and skills. The exchange of perspectives with others through shared units, reading groups and debates helps establish stimulating and productive networks.

The focus on proposing and developing a major independent programme of study is supported by a shared professional practice lecture series featuring guest speakers plus opportunities to attend symposia and critique work in progress across subject areas. The Postgraduate Art Programme has wide-ranging links with professional organizations, collections and galleries, and includes opportunities for interaction and networking according to your personal career direction.

MA Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies explores photography as a visual language feeding into a wide range of professional arenas and related disciplines. MA Contemporary Photography; Practices and Philosophies graduates are equipped to work in the gallery world, fine art publishing, book publishing and advertising, in London and beyond. They may also progress academically to research (PhD study) and teaching. Equipped with industry and cultural knowledge, you'll leave us knowing your worth in the art and business worlds, at home in international gallery or commercial contexts and able to initiate substantial cultural projects.
