Program Description

Bachelor in Photography (BA - Hons)

Anyone can press the button on a camera but we’ll encourage you to critically consider every aspect of this art form, from the composition to the audience to post-production. You’ll learn about the whole world of visual language and image making, from art direction to curating, and learn to use a wide range of traditional and digital formats and equipment. You will understand historical schools of photography as well as the ever-increasing cross-over between genres, such as documentary, fashion, fine-art and commercial photography. Most importantly, we’ll help you to identify your chosen path, and prepare you to begin building a successful career.

We’re looking for students with a range of interests and an open mind, who embrace broader practices around photography. This is important because photographers increasingly work across genres, from fine art to documentary picture-making.
