Course summary

Our Masters programmes offer you an intensive personal programme of creative and stimulating study within a supportive critical and practical framework that enables you to examine, interrogate and reflect upon the nature and role of your chosen practice.

We encourage diversity in thinking and making, acknowledging the potential in material exploration, collaborative working, cross-fertilisation of ideas, and the exploration of new and vital concepts. Critical enquiry and practice-based exploration are central to the programmes, helping you to make dynamic and challenging work that resonates and reflects your key concerns in light of current national and international dialogues.

Our MA Photography programme acts as a platform to help develop your creative and professional practice, providing access to our specialist photographic facilities.

We’ll encourage you to consider the place of photography in contemporary society, in terms of the production, distribution and consumption of photographic images.

Through your research and practice, this will enable you to shape the way that photography is used and interpreted. Contemporary approaches to photography show that this is a fast-expanding visual discipline and with an important position within creative, social and cultural practices.

We welcome applications from those who want to bring about change in a range of contexts: these may include independent photographic practitioners, documentary photographers, archivists, curators, researchers, writers and educators.

Alumni of our Graduate School pursue careers in the fields of fine art, craft and design, as practising artists, teachers, curators, and as gallery, theatre and technical professionals. Others go on to prepare for doctoral study, and set up viable projects as socially engaged and community-based practitioners.

Our programmes offer professional skills development to support our students as they progress within industry, self-employment (in the Creative Industries sector) and further Level 7 and 8 studies. The second module offers an opportunity to test out the practices being investigated by individual students within an appropriate, live setting.
