BFA

The BFA in Photography is a three-year undergraduate programme, which combines photographic practice with theory. Throughout the programme students work on their own photographic practice. The practice is directed through specific themes in the first two years, when each term has a different focus on a premise that is relevant for the method and presentation of photography. Teaching methods for developing the practice are through seminars, technical workshops, critique classes and individual tutorials. 

Alongside the practice runs a theory course, which helps students contextualise, analyse and criticise the field in which they are working. This supports students when, in their third year, they formulate an independent individual project, which serves as the material for their final examination and public exhibition.

MFA

The master’s programme in Photography offers you the opportunity to develop your already existing photographic practice, your visual literacy, and your own creativity. In a critical and generous dialogue with teachers and fellow students, you will formulate your work in different contexts and have the possibility to present your work in public venues, school galleries, and printed matter. The programme provides analogue labs and digital workshops as well as a critical and theoretical environment. 

In a world of rapid change and increased polemics, photography is needed to interpret, understand, and sometimes contribute to change. The programme encourages a wide range of expression through photography and puts focus on history, context, and efficacy when guiding you through the education. The power of photography is both its presence in the everyday and its ability to be scrutinized, analysed, and recontextualized.  

You will have access to a working environment with analogue labs, photo studios, project spaces, digital workshops, and equipment lending. One of the objectives of the programme is to prepare you to work within the art and photography field in a conscious and strategic manner.
