MA Photography (Online) at University of Lincoln aims to enable graduates to develop a highly distinctive creative voice to define and lead the wide range of global artistic, commercial, and academic opportunities that this growing field can offer.


The Photography (Online) programme from University of Lincoln is delivered entirely using online tools enabling students to access course content through the tried and tested Blackboard Virtual Learning Environment. 

Through five modules, students will develop a thorough understanding of the key and continuing theoretical and critical issues and research methodologies that underpin contemporary photography and apply them to their own practical project work.

What you'll learn

The course is designed to enable students to explore, take risks, and cultivate ideas within a structured and supportive environment led by experienced and award-winning practitioners and academics. There is an emphasis on regular feedback from staff, collaborative exploration, together with peer review and feedback. Careful consideration has been given to cultivating an online community of learners who can work together to realise their ideas and ambitions.

Professional practice is embedded within the course at every stage, and the module 'Collaborative Photography Practice' will enable students to work with external organisations and companies, forming productive relationships which are related to assessment. These skills are transferrable to a wide range of related creative industries, all of which require people who are agile in their thinking, can recognise relationships between different contexts, and can apply themselves either individually or as part of a team.


In the module 'Collaborative Photography Practice' you will source and engage with a live brief from a real-world client as a framework for exploring collaboration through commercial or socially engaged photography. You will have the opportunity to develop extensive working knowledge and practical understanding of contemporary collaborative practice and future employment opportunities within photography and related creative industries. You will produce a personal journal to take forward into the second year professional practice module.
