What is Bachelor of Arts (Hons) Photography?

The BA Photography is a four-year honours degree full-time semesterised programme preparing the student for careers in professional photographic media practice and visual arts sectors. The underlying philosophy of the programme is one of encouraging and supporting a creative and reflective approach towards a professional and photographic visual media practice. The programme teaches skills and adopts a hands-on practical approach in which the student learns by doing and reflecting on their actions and practices. This occurs with a critical understanding of the context of media and visual arts production and a process of intellectual enquiry into the nature of society and culture. A key emphasis of the programme is the integration of theory and practice throughout each of its four years. Modules in production are underpinned and shaped by theoretical study in the technologies, texts and contexts and institutional settings in which the photographer operates. The production and practice modules incorporate critical and reflective reviews in which the students are expected to detail a critical response to the work produced and reflect on the process in which it was produced.


Students may be required to attend classes at locations across the Institute.
