The arrival of affordable digital cameras has stimulated widespread interest in photography, presenting professional photographers with both new opportunities and challenges. This program will prepare you for a career in professional photographic media practice, as well as the broader visual arts sector. It will equip you with key skills while encouraging you to reflect on your actions and practices. There are three main strands: Critical Studies (Visual Studies, History, Theory, and Criticism); Photographic Practice, and Professional Studies (Study Skills, Law, and Business). The Critical Studies will develop your understanding of the context of media and visual arts production while fostering intellectual inquiry into the nature of society and culture. The practice modules are underpinned by the theoretical study of photographic technologies and images in the social and institutional context in which the photographer operates. The wide variety of career opportunities includes commercial and industrial photography (ranging from medical to fashion), photography as a visual arts practice, multimedia, print and electronic media, photojournalism, and editorial work. Others pursue careers in education and postgraduate research.
