Our Photography BA is a long-established course with an excellent international reputation for academic and practical teaching. The course builds upon the success and legacy of photography as a discipline at Westminster, whilst implementing an updated and innovative curriculum, which explores and productively engages with emerging digital technologies and commercial practices. You’ll explore photography and digital imaging technologies across a wide range of specialisms, critical thinking and partnerships with industry and employers. Upon graduation, as a contemporary image maker, you’ll be equipped with a very attractive profile to compete in a fast-growing creative industry. The course promotes experimentation and invites you to shape your own learning. This will allow you to develop a strong individual creative voice and vision, underpinned by critical and contextual understanding, alongside professional level photographic skills, to produce work that is distinctive and innovative. We provide career enhancement opportunities that will allow you to flourish well beyond graduation, whether that is in the art world, in photographic creative industries, in fashion, digital and virtual environments, or in a commercial setting. You’ll gain practical experience through regular contact with industry professionals, guest talks by industry experts, participation in mentorship programs, and field trips to photography-related spaces. You’ll also have the opportunity to take an optional year-long paid internship or placement between years 2 and 3 of this course. This experience will enable you to develop your professional skills and gain industry exposure well before you graduate.
