Entry requirements

You will have either a 2:1 honours degree or suitable, relevant experience. We welcome students from a multiplicity of backgrounds, meaning that these qualifications and professional experiences need not have been gained in the field of photography. All applicants will be interested in developing a portfolio of critically informed work that extends beyond the traditions of the still image and intersects with other time-based or interactive media practices.

Course content

This innovative Master’s programme involves experimenting with new photographic processes and exploring photography as a tool to engage and stimulate social thinking.

While the photographic image remains fundamental to your study, the focus of this programme is social, cultural and political. To support your ongoing practice in photographic exhibition and scholarly research, the course includes seminars on cultural, media and philosophical theory, talks by visiting practitioners, group debates about different methodologies and workshops on photographic technique.

The Lincoln School of Film & Media is home to a dynamic postgraduate community and you will be encouraged to learn from, and collaborate with, experienced staff and your fellow students in order to develop your own creative style.
