Course summary

Course Summary

This practice-based course helps you to explore the creative and intellectual possibilities of photography through practice and research, supporting your development as an artist photographer. It takes a critical and discursive approach, with the expectation that you’ll reflect and evaluate your practice in relation to contemporary photographic discourse and the wider contexts of image culture. You will be supported in the use of traditional and digital production methods through a range of practical and technical workshops, and be encouraged to experiment across the boundaries of production technologies. You’ll produce a project proposal known as a learning agreement through which you will establish your research objectives and practice ambition. You will develop a substantial body of work for public exhibition or publication that will enable your future independent and sustainable creative practice. Our photography staff team offer a wide range of knowledge and expertise across a breadth of photographic practices and will support your learning and individual interests, through informative and responsive teaching.

Careers and employability

This course leads to a wide range of career opportunities within photography including freelance photographer; artist; curator; picture researcher; photojournalist; picture editor; gallery manager; and exhibitions coordinator. Graduates also use this course to support careers in teaching, lecturing, and progression on to MPhil or PhD study. Our aim is to produce highly employable graduates, and we are committed to offering experiences throughout the course that will enhance your understanding of the creative industries in which photographic practice is situated. The University’s Employability team can help to prepare you, offering a variety of activities including CV building, writing job applications, and preparing for interviews.
