Course summary

MA Photography

September 2020 will see the launch of our new MA Photography programme engaging with contemporary practices in image-making, writing and curating through eco-critical and post-human perspectives.

This outward-facing programme prepares you for professional opportunities in the fields of exhibition, curation and publication. Intensive periods of studio-based workshops, symposia, lectures, online tutorials, and visits to studios, galleries and research centres provide the basis of the learning experience.

Key features

  • A contemporary and transdisciplinary programme of study that engages with contemporary practices in image-making, curating and writing through eco-critical and posthumanist perspectives and prepares postgraduates for the rigours and challenges of a career in a dynamic, fluid and complex world.
  • Rigorous training in innovative art methodologies, such as Diffractive and Affective, which encourage experimentation, openness, originality and risk-taking, and encourages new conceptual and theoretical articulations that respond to our complex social and cultural world.
  • A learning and teaching ethos that has evolved from student-centred and student-led initiatives to promote participation, creation and imagination in discovering solutions to real-world challenges. Intensive periods of studio-based workshops, symposia, lectures, online tutorials, fieldtrips and visits to studios, galleries and research centres provide the basis of the vital and varied learning experience.
  • Engagement with theoretical perspectives on photography, both contemporary and historical, and their integration with practice, with particular focus on environment and ecology and identity and global mobility.
  • A supportive student experience that combines practical competences from workshops and online support, entrepreneurship from seminars and visiting speakers, with creative exploration from project-based individual and collaborative modes of practice.
  • The University Smart Hub, an online for booking system for inductions as well as equipment, studio space, darkrooms, print facilities and the Charles Seale-Hayne Library, providing access to physical and electronic resources, actively support the teaching, learning and research of the university.
  • An outward-facing programme that connects with other international centres of photography and extensive networks of individuals and organisations around Europe and globally to provide professional opportunities in the fields of exhibition, curation, teaching and publication.
  • A vibrant research culture that flourishes across the arts and other disciplines, with photography programmes ranging from undergraduate to postgraduate with masters level and doctoral research, and opportunities to work in a transdisciplinary way across the wider University.
