Taught by some of the UK's leading practitioners and specialists in Photography, Visual Culture, and Communication Arts, this course is divided into five modules taken over three semesters (if studied full time). Each module is designed to be flexible, allowing you to bring your own Photography interests to the assignments while extending the boundaries of current photographic practice through experimentation, research, analysis, and creative exploration.

Developing Practice – Term 1 (30 credits) Through a combination of studio, practice and text based methods you will explore a chosen area of your Photography in a contemporary context while enhancing your technical skills. By the end of this module you'll be able to employ a variety of reflective methods to develop your own creative research proposal with the advanced communication skills to present, discuss and evaluate your work effectively.

Critical Debates – Term 1 (30 credits) Through a series of lectures, seminars and reading groups you'll explore the key concepts, ideas, issues and research methodologies relating to the practice and theory of Photography. With particular focus on the cultural and social contexts within your chosen discipline, you'll produce a portfolio of critical responses to contemporary debates in research and professional practice.

Image and Insight – Term 2 (30 credits) This module explores what it is to be an independent author in Photography with particular focus on the contemporary outlets and possibilities for your work, such as social mead and high speed transfers. Through in depth examination of both modern and historical photographers you will begin to establish your place, purpose and direction in the industry. As part of this module you will develop a self initiated photographic project that demonstrates your individual and original approach to Photography, as well as preparing you for your final Major Project in Term 3.

Advanced Research – Term 2 (30 credits) Through a series of lectures, workshops, seminars and individual tutorials you will examine a diverse range of advanced approaches to Photography research using both historical and contemporary sources. This module is designed to prepare you for your final Major Project by enabling you to explore the work of practitioners and scholars in Photography, and the contemporary research problems that they face. By the end of this module you will have produced an illustrated Research Survey demonstrating your investigations and findings.

Major Project – Term 3 (60 credits) The final module is an opportunity for you to bring together the knowledge and skills that you have acquired during the course and apply them to a significant project of Photography. Using research methodologies, concepts and processes previously explored in the course you will evaluate interrelationships between theory and practice. By the end of this final module you will have produced a portfolio or public exhibition of a substantial body of practice work supported by critical and reflective written work that demonstrates your resolution and expertise.

Your skills, knowledge and understanding will be entirely assessed by coursework including practical projects, oral presentations and supporting written work. There are no exams.
