You will have access to a range of specialised photographic facilities across the school to support your area of practice, including photography studios, professional capture equipment, post-production editing facilities, computer labs and large format fine art printing technologies.
You will be required to attend on-campus classes throughout the delivery of this degree.
Learning in this degree uses a variety of teaching and learning approaches, with a major focus on intensive photographic production and workshop practice. The workshops are places in which you will refine and develop your practical, theoretical and conceptual skills through development of an independently generated project proposal negotiated with supervisory staff.
You will learn in an environment where the politics, meanings and functions of images are examined. Your studies will involve regular engagement in the review, critique and analysis of work through discussion with staff and peers in both individual and group critiques and tutorials.
Independent research forms an integral part of the course structure, focusing on locating and developing your photographic practice within a broader understanding of historical and contemporary photographic narratives and providing a firm foundation for embarking on a career as an independent photographer or as preparation for further advanced study at postgraduate level. This degree produces rounded graduates who are conscious of the ethical, social and cultural implications of their professional choices.
Assessment involves learning by doing, and will include developing a range of project based photographic works, written reflections, oral and visual presentations, proposals and exegesis documents.
You’ll receive ongoing feedback on the strengths and areas for improvement in your photographic practice from your lecturers and peers.
