This is a practical Master’s course for photographers, illustrators and graphic designers. We encourage you to work independently and collaboratively, while learning a shared visual language.
Working alongside other students and in consultation with your tutors, you will build a professional and critical context for your practice, in the process of developing each of your projects. Your growing confidence and increased ability, will be clearly evident in the portfolio’s you present when joining the profession, or continuing to study.
You’ll develop your visual communication practice, concentrating on practical, conceptual, historical and contemporary concerns. You’ll enter critical dialogue with other students in related fields and we’ll help you place your practice in an appropriate context; Our view is that by integrating your methods with those in related fields, you’ll become a more effective specialist photographer, graphic designer or illustrator. At a time when boundaries between these disciplines are changing – and in some cases dissolving – this is particularly important.
You’ll become adept at working individually and collaboratively. Through developing an individual specialist project, you’ll conceptualise, critique and contextualise your approach, whilst fine tuning your aesthetic sensibilities. You’ll also collaborate to produce joint projects, negotiating the final outcomes with your team members.
You’ll graduate with:
A broad informed outlook;
A genuine confidence in your abilities;
The skills necessary to succeed in your chosen specialism.
The usual requirement is a good first degree (2:1 and above, or the international equivalent) in a related subject area, in addition to a portfolio that demonstrates your visual ability. You may be selected based upon your particular work background, and your aptitude to the course. If your work experience is in a parallel field, appropriate to the course, we will consider your application.
The purpose of this course is to enable each student to question re-establish and define their own professional practice. This will enable individuals to control their career trajectory with a view to working in the creative industries internationally.
