These skills are developed upon a critical understanding of photographic practice. The course utilises the University's high quality digital & analogue facilities and the significant professional expertise of the lecturers.
The course has a broad and balanced focus, allowing students to align their studies with a wide field of career aspirations in professional photographic practice. It allows the student to produce bodies of professional work that range from commercial, to documentary, to fine art or installation-based photography . It fosters the creative expression of ideas, and the development of technical skills that are usable in a wide variety of applied photographic contexts.
The BA (Photography) offers fully equipped photographic studios, as well as digital imaging computer labs and darkrooms, which are using up to date industry standard equipment and associated technologies.
Students can elect minor studies in increasingly related disciplines, such as Multimedia and Graphic Design, as well as from all other courses in the School of Visual & Performing Arts. Alternatively, the School offers 4-year double degree programs in Photography/Multimedia as well as Photography/Graphic Design.
