Photography and Video Art BA (Hons)

We place photography and video at the heart of contemporary art practice, and the techniques, methodologies and skills learnt on this course will help you to challenge your preconceptions and confront prejudices.

Our teaching methods are ideas based, so you will quickly acquire the practical skills you will need to be a successful practicing artist while learning about identity, globalisation and the narrative of place.

Individualism and practical creativity will be key to your success, so in addition to working on digital techniques and image manipulation, you will learn about traditional darkroom photography.

We will also encourage you to explore studio based image-making, alternative forms of portraiture and narrative photography and video.

Photography and video – they’re at the heart of contemporary art. Always controversial, never dull, ready to challenge, confront and create, this course reflects its power to change the way we think about our world.
