Course overview - The MA Photography programme offers an in-depth, creative and socially engaged postgraduate level education in the practices of contemporary photography. From darkroom practice and professional development through to a final degree show, we will nurture your visual development and critical thinking.

  • We live in a visual age. Photography, as well as images and visual artefacts, plays a huge role in how we see and understand a range of issues in the past, present and future. Through a mix of practical and research-based modules, the MA will support the visual and critical development of your practice, helping you to bring ownership to your ideas whilst creating visually exciting and intellectually stimulating visual work.

  • Through a blend of taught lectures and independent practice, supported by workshops, tutorials and field exercises, you will be encouraged to develop work that focuses on your strengths and interests while having the support and encouragement to think about how photographs are created, used, discussed and shared in our increasingly visually rich world.

Why study with us - Outstanding facilities and staff within our purpose-built Media Factory building, a hub for the creative industries.

  • You’ll get to use industry-standard digital cameras and a digital photography IT suite with large format scanners, exhibition-quality digital printing facilities, and computing suites equipped with the latest software packages.

  • We have three photography studios equipped to a standard that makes them comparable with any modern professional studio. We also have excellent darkroom facilities and our own photography base-room.
