About

An innovative and internationally renowned MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography (Online) course offered at the University of the Arts London (UAL) and designed for photojournalists and documentary photographers who wish to develop a wider vision of the practice and potential of the medium.

Overview

This internationally-recognised MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography (Online) course offered at the University of the Arts London (UAL) is aimed at people who want to pursue a career in photojournalism or documentary photography, or who are already active in these fields but wish to develop new skills and ideas.

Photojournalists and documentary photographers explore and record human experience. Beginning with figures like Henri Cartier-Bresson (regarded as the father of modern photojournalism), they have recorded significant moments in history, documented unfolding news and created images that have gained iconic status. Central to their work is the telling of a story through images.

What can you expect?

The aim is to equip you with a thorough grounding in the discipline, whether through film or digitally-based photography.

You’ll follow a rigorous programme of photographic assignments, as well as initiating and developing your own projects examining topics and issues of special interest to you. All this takes place within the framework of the history and development of the medium, together with critical ethical and theoretical contexts.

You’ll be encouraged to develop a wider vision of the practice and potential of the medium through an exploration of the uses of documentary and reportage photography in magazines, portfolios, exhibitions, books, television, online and other multimedia areas.

Graduates of this course have won numerous awards, including the World Press Photo (Daily Life, singles category) and the Taylor Wessing Portrait Prize.

MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography is taught in both full-timeand part-time/online modes. This course is taught within the Media Schoolat LCC.
