Study Photography Degrees

Photography is something that is employed in many different sectors, ranging from the sciences, business, to medicine, as well as its traditional use in the arts. You will be given the opportunity to develop your knowledge and skills within photography, as well as broadening your portfolio and exploring what it would be like to work as a professional photographer.

An undergraduate degree in photography will usually give you a foundation knowledge of photography, and will teach you how to use the equipment available to you. You will become familiar with the technology and techniques in digital and analogue photography, as well as developing your ideas and theories within contemporary photography.

Your degree will be delivered in a mixture of modes. These will include lectures and seminars, as well as practical work. You may be given the opportunity to do a work placement in the second or third year.
