For aspiring photographers and moving image makers, Lincoln's BA (Hons) Photography degree offers an artistic learning environment that values creative expression. Students have the opportunity to learn from academics who are experienced practitioners with active links to industry. The Photography degree at Lincoln offers students the opportunity to gain extensive experience working with professional-standard facilities and equipment and to showcase their work at competitions, film festivals and public exhibitions. Students are encouraged to experiment and explore a variety of lens-based techniques – from traditional darkroom to innovative digital technologies. This approach aims to enable students to develop a specialism and to cultivate a creative and distinctive final portfolio or showreel with which they have the opportunity to launch an artistic career.
The first year offers students an introduction to visual communication and the role it plays in society. Students have the opportunity to learn processes and methods for both photography and moving images in preparation for developing a specialism in the second year. In this way, students can plan an artistic trajectory and engage with professional practice in the creative industries. In the final year of the degree, students produce a major body of work in a chosen area that demonstrates a thorough understanding of medium and style, and work towards a final exhibition and portfolio or showreel.
The way students will be assessed on this course will vary for each module. It could include coursework, such as a dissertation or essay, written and practical exams, portfolio development, group work or presentations to name some examples. Throughout this degree, students may receive tuition from professors, senior lecturers, lecturers, researchers, practitioners, visiting experts or technicians, and they may be supported in their learning by other students.
