We live in a visual age. Photography , as well as images and visual artefacts, plays a huge role in how we see and understand a range of issues in the past, present and future. Through a mix of practical and research-based modules, the MA will support the visual and critical development of your practice, helping you to bring ownership to your ideas whilst creating visually exciting and intellectually stimulating visual work.
Through a blend of taught lectures and independent practice, supported by workshops, tutorials and field exercises, you will be encouraged to develop work that focuses on your strengths and interests while having the support and encouragement to think about how photographs are created, used, discussed and shared in our increasingly visually rich world.
The Photography programme from University of Central Lancashire (UCLan) will help you prepare for a professional or academic career in photography and related visual fields.
Our graduates have gone on to work as freelance fashion photographers, sports photographers and in digital editing and filmmaking amongst many other successful and varied careers.
