The MA Documentary Photography course from University of South Wales challenges you to explore definitions of Documentary Photography by embracing a wide range of practices, while working through real world engagement with social and political issues.
You will be taught by world-leading photographers, writers and curators through a series of lectures, seminars and technical workshops which will encourage you to develop new ways of thinking about your practice.
The course is particularly popular among those wishing to pursue a career in documentary production and research, photographic exhibition, publishing, teaching or journalism.
Recent graduates have regularly exhibited their work and several now teach in higher education. A number are also undertaking PhD study.
The course has an eminent list of alumni now working within the photographic industry, including freelance photographers and those who have set up their own businesses.

Qualifications and Experience
- Normally an Honours degree in a related subject is required. However, if you have solid professional industry experience rather than academic achievement, this may be acceptable for entry to study at this level through a process called Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL).
Portfolio and Interview requirements
- Please provide evidence of a website or any other form of digital portfolio within your application. We are looking for an engagement with documentary photography or photojournalism with a particular focus on series of images rather than individual photographs. You may then be asked to attend an interview supported by a (physical printed) portfolio.
