Many will eventually end up owning their own business, or in management roles in larger organisations. They tend to be very goal-oriented and work best when focused on a target. Some have an entrepreneurial inclination.

Course Summary

School of Media
School of Media

BA Photography fully integrates theory and practice throughout each year. Adopting a hands-on approach, the programme equips students with key skills, while encouraging students to reflect on their actions and practices.

The theoretical (Critical Studies) side of the programme provides students with a critical understanding of the context of media and visual arts production, while fostering intellectual enquiry into the nature of society and culture.

Photography practice modules are underpinned by theoretical study of photographic technologies and images in the social and institutional context in which the photographer operates. In thinking about their own work and how they produce it, students articulate a critical response to the images they create.
