Course Summary

The course explores documentary practice and photojournalism as exciting and developing mediums, through a combination of practice-based teaching,  discussion of critical contexts and engagements with live projects.

Our applicants include students of documentary photography/photojournalism or other photographers, artists who wish to focus their activities on a more social practice, and suitably experienced individuals from other disciplines, who wish to explore the subject area at Post Graduate level

The MA Documentary Photography and Photojournalism  allows students to explore ideas of society through related practice and within informed ways that maintain connections with the issue, yet also consider fresh visual approaches to the subject matter. We explore the idea that documentary practice and photojournalism may take many forms in the 21st Century.
