Program Overview

Our MA Photography programme engages 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.

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.
