Description

If you’ve got a passion for photography and an undergraduate qualification in the subject, this MA Photography course is your perfect way to take your creative career forward.

On this course, you’ll extend your photographic work to postgraduate level and hone your authorial voice and engage with the debates that inform and underpin photographic practice.
