In Year 1, both single honours and combined honours students are introduced to the creative practice of photography and to the critical approaches to studying photography, introducing imaging skills and techniques. This includes modules in Creative Photographic Practice, Photographic Studies, Photography in Context, Digital Imaging and Visual Research.
In Year 2, the modules taken vary according to whether the programme is studied as single honours or as combined honours. All students take a double module in Advanced Creative Photographic Practice with many additional optional modules to select from, including Advanced Analogue, Advanced Digital Imaging, Documentary, Curatorial and Film Studies.
In Year 3, a greater emphasis is placed on independent learning. For example, students take a compulsory extended double Specialised Study by Practical Project, developing their individually negotiated projects and preparing for their final degree show. In addition, optional modules include Dissertation, Independent and Art Photography and Mixed Media Production.
