Our one-year BA Photography articulation course will build upon and enhance your existing technical and contextual understanding via a range of creative briefs that investigate photography across both fine art and design contexts. The curriculum encompasses editorial, documentary, photojournalism, landscape, and portraiture alongside moving image, film, advertising, and fashion.

Through the application of research and development methodologies and associated processes you will experiment, test and expand your knowledge of the discipline. You will explore the work of key practitioners and further enhance your understanding of photography through historical, cultural, and economic contexts. Our creative futures module will also afford you the opportunity to participate in a series of new business start-up activities which encourage you to adopt an entrepreneurial outlook.
