The key strengths of our programme are our strong artistic vision and emphasis on visuality combined with our capacity for conceptual thinking.
In the Photography degree programme from Aalto University, we will support your own personal expression and offer a theoretical foundation for understanding comtemporary photographic phenomena.
Our broad range of courses include elective workshops on subjects such as practices of documentary and staged photography, experimental studio, moving image, new platforms for photography and various working methods and themes of contemporary art.
The goal of the Master’s Degree Programme in Photography is to help our students to discover their own strengths and to create opportunities for success in a continually changing and developing field.
Our programme offers excellent opportunities for working in the fields of photography and contemporary art, and the programme has already become well-known thanks to a number of our internationally successful alumni. A Master of Arts degree also allows the student to apply for post-graduate studies leading to a Doctor of Arts degree.
