Overview

Film and Photography at the University of Derby has a long history of excellence. Our MA programme teaches Film and Photography as a fine art practice, offering a contemporary and exciting programme. 

We will inspire you to shape your individual creative practice with relevant theoretical knowledge and experimental approaches, informing a personal voice and engagement within the creative industries.

We are looking for applicants who are strongly motivated, reflective and independently minded.  The course supports projects that enable you to focus on a specialist aspect of film or photographic practice, along with proposals (major project) that combine or explore the relationship between the two disciplines.  We value interdisciplinary debate that utilises the collective knowledge and experience of students and staff. 

Careers

This course builds on the success and experience of our previous postgraduate programmes and is informed by the importance of adaptability in a rapidly changing global industry. The University is committed to your long-term success, and if you choose this course you will benefit from support that has secured for Derby a ranking of 15th highest for graduate employment amongst UK universities (HESA 2015).

The University hosts the International Film and Photography FORMAT exhibition and conference in collaboration with Derby QUAD, which attracts artists from all over the world.  This provides a unique opportunity for Derby students to showcase their work, to network, and create and establish contacts in industry.
