The inter-connected curriculum looks at imagery, photography techniques, theoretical research knowledge, skills and understanding.

The curriculum is project oriented and stimulates a dynamic work situation in which students experiment, explore, make and reflect, and in so doing constantly come into contact with new environments, challenges and issues. The curriculum also looks at the continuously changing professional practice of today’s photographers. These days, the medium of photography is not restricted to a handful of professionals – almost everyone takes photos, often digital photos, and more and more people are able to digitally edit them. While everybody records their lives, manipulates their photos and publishes them on their own platforms such as social media and blogs, the professional photographer maintains the overview of the professional field and reflects on it.
