Studies in Photography begin with a comprehensive introduction to photographic principles, an exploration of photography as a device for communicating information, ideas and personal insights, and an introduction to the basic materials and processes of photographic practice.
Further studies involve an examination of the procedures which are distinctive to photography and how these procedures can be used for documentary and artistic expression.
Advanced studies are individually constructed; they focus on projects concerned with expressive aspects of the medium, and are encouraged to see their work and to examine it critically within its historical and sociological context.
Photography students gain careers as professional artists, art gallery directors, photo-journalists, commercial photographers, consultants, art critics, art historians, lecturers and art teachers.
