The course explores documentary photography and photojournalism as exciting and expanding mediums, through a combination of practice-based teaching and discussion of critical contexts.
We take each applicant on their own merit. This can include students of documentary photography or photographers in general who are interested in specialising in this area and developing their practice. Also welcome are artists who wish to focus their activities on a more social practice, and individuals from other disciplines, who wish to explore the subject area at post grad level.
The Documentary Photography and Photojournalism MA allows students to explore society through photographically-related practice and within critically-informed ways that maintain connections with the issue, yet also consider fresh visual approaches to the subject matter.
We explore the idea that documentary practice and photojournalism are situated within their own histories and may take many forms in the 21st Century. Importantly, from your arrival, we emphasise the development of your own practice, through experimentation and classroom critique.
The course leads towards a consolidation of student learning into a high profile exhibition in a central London exhibition space.
You will be taught by practising professional photographers, artists and writers, within a supportive course atmosphere. Technically, the course resources are equipped to the highest professional standards for both analogue and digital production of still and moving image. The course builds on the international stature of the photographic and journalism departments of the University and may be taken in full-time or part-time modes.
