Choose Kingston's Photography MA
This course offers an opportunity for students to develop a major body of practical work that engages with the expanded boundaries of photography and hybridisation of the medium. It is concerned with a broad range of photographic practices and technologies and explores debates around the politics of representation and our role as image makers.
- You will have the opportunity to exhibit your work and take part in off-site visits to galleries, photography festivals and other cultural spaces, as well as study tours.
- Supported by a team of technical and academic staff, you will have access to a professional photography suite that includes two new digital-imaging areas, darkroom areas, two double-height photography studios and a general preparation, finishing and demonstration area. In addition, you will have access to 3D, screen printing and moving image workshops.
What will you study?
You will gain a thorough understanding of the history of photography and its continuously developing field of interrelated forms of image production and visual culture.

Supported by taught modules and an experienced group of research-active staff, you will develop critical thinking and a sustained practice.
