Comments about Master Photography - At the institution - London - Greater London

  • Objectives
    The course is a taught, practice-based programme enabling students to acquire advanced traditional and digital photographic skills and apply them to complex, self-generated projects. This is a Professional Preparation course as defined by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. Linking the course with MA Audio Visual Production and MA Digital Moving Image enables the development of Film Works, a coherent cluster of practice-based courses that explore a range of related skills including digital, traditional and contextual concerns. Students will be encouraged to explore the ways in which traditional practices and emerging digital technologies have developed new genres.
  • Entry requirements
    Applicants should be committed practitioners who wish to expand their practice both in terms of skills acquisition and theoretical concerns. The Department supports a wide diversity of practices. Applicants are normally expected to possess an Honours degree in Photography or Fine Arts, applied arts or design, or have equivalent experience. Graduates from related disciplines who can demonstrate a suitable level of visual literacy may, in some circumstances, be considered. All candidates must submit a portfolio. Successful applicants may be eligible to apply for an AHRC award (deadline is 1st April).
