Photography BA (Hons)
This course combines the practical and academic study of photography within the inspirational and interdisciplinary context of the Belfast School of Art.
A distinctive feature is the integrated approach to the teaching of professional photographic skills and the development of a critical understanding of photography.
The course develops creative ability and embraces diversity and individuality, emphasizing the increasing role of technology and innovation in contemporary image production. The study of photographic history and key aspects of art theory that relate to the medium, provide a critical framework within which to develop an individual photographic voice.
An interdisciplinary approach to photography is encouraged and outcomes include; photographic installation, documentary, editorial, gallery exhibition, artist book works, printmaking and more traditionally commercial practices like photojournalism or portrait photography.
Students are introduced to new ways of working and thinking. There is a constant opportunity for the student to develop their ideas and to challenge their understanding of visual concepts through photographic practice.
