Photography is a dynamic, multi-disciplinary practice with many histories, identities and dimensions. At the Wolverhampton School of Art (est. 1851), we explore these diverse legacies through contemporary practice and critical theory. The BA Photography philosophy is that images should be about something rather than of something and examines making images through practical assignments and a number of key photographic themes such as: identity and portraiture; place and location and narrative and performance. These assignments and themes are developed through six modules: Level 4 Recollections and Situations; Level 5 Interventions and Encounters and Level 6 Live and Show. The modules allow you to explore the relationships for example between photography and the self-portrait; studio image and fashion; our personal image in emotional photography in health and memory as well as interpretative recordings of landscapes, documentary and portraiture. All courses in the School of Art are now available with a professional placement option (Sandwich Year). A professional placement provides an opportunity for professional development in the work place and as such, greatly enhances the student’s prospects of finding rewarding and relevant employment at the end of their studies. The school assists students in securing work placements, undertaking live briefs, engaging directly with employers and developing key employability skills. The School is committed to raising student awareness of the opportunities that exist post-graduation. International students will need to apply for the BA (Hons) Fashion course with professional placement before joining the course to ensure visa requirements are met.
