Course summary

Why study MA Photography and Urban Cultures at Goldsmiths?

  • Developed by the Centre for Urban and Community Research, the degree encourages creative interplay between practice and theory – you’ll develop your practical photography skills and examine key ideas and debates in the representation and evocation of contemporary city life.
  • You will have the chance to consider cutting-edge debates in cultural and social theory in a research setting that actively encourages the development of photographic practice.
  • If you are already a working photographer, visual artist or media practitioner, this programme gives you space to reflect critically on your practice.
  • For those with a background in sociology, urban and cultural geography, cultural studies or anthropology, the degree provides an opportunity to combine visual forms of representation with standard forms of research techniques in investigating urban life and the physical environments of the city.
  • The programme aims to link directly to professional research outcomes, and many graduates have secured employment within urban research, ethnography, teaching, curatorial and arts practice, human rights, and architectural research.
