The degree courses in photography at the University of Brighton encourage the development of innovative practices. Our photography students can expect an experimental, creative and critical environment in which to practice and think about photography.
At the forefront of an ever-expanding visual culture, photography occupies diverse spaces in in contemporary culture, from the walls of major museums and galleries to cutting-edge commercial applications.
Photography is a highly complex and subtle form of visual representation that underpins ideas about identity, history, memory, desire and place, informing how we see and why we look.
The BA(Hons)/MFA Photography course at Brighton embodies a culture fully committed to exploring and questioning the medium, so as to develop a conception of what photography is and how it might be used and interpreted in the future.
The photography course ultimately encourages learners to reflect on their own position within contemporary photographic practice and debates, supporting their professional development as practitioners who can formulate new visual languages that effectively represent the world today.
