About the MA

MA Photography at UCLan

The course will help you become a flexible multi-skilled contemporary visual practitioner. You will develop a critical and vocational awareness of how imagery will work for a range of destinations and web-based platforms.
By the end you should be able to produce challenging cutting edge work and be able to identify professional outputs relevant to your vocational aspirations.

Practice is at the core of the programme. Experimentation, evaluation and the resolution of ideas and skills together are central to its philosophy. The course therefore is delivered through a variety of methods under the guidance of experienced practitioners. Critically based lectures and seminars will give you a firm grounding in current thinking about visual practice and a critical understanding of contemporary practitioners working in a politically and socially complex world. Intensive workshop sessions will enable you to attain the relevant high-level skills necessary to undertake professional level visual problem solving.

Developing your understanding of industry expectations and professional practices will further underpin the much of the course. Live real world projects will provide you with challenging contexts in which to explore and develop your practice in.

Opportunities to take part in professional projects, placements or to work on client-based briefs, both in the UK and abroad, will help you to acquire the relevant experiences and skills to prepare you for working in the world outside.
