Photography (MA)

The MA Photography programme at UWE Bristol explores photography from an expansive range of creative, critical and intellectual perspectives. We aim to develop a new generation of leading, dynamic, ambitious, innovative and informed photographic practitioners – as well as a vibrant and supportive community – who are working at the highest artistic and professional levels. We are committed to contributing to, challenging and advancing the photographic medium, as well as the dialogues that revolve around it, through an intensive focus on creative experimentation, cutting-edge production and considered critical engagement.
