Bachelor of Design (Honours) in Photography

In the Bachelor of Design (Honours) in Photography students learn how to create outstanding images which are linked to the sociocultural context that drives contemporary visual culture.

The honours year enables students to explore an independent project through research.

With the rapid evolution of the photographic medium due to digital and mobile technologies, images are situated in particular contexts, whether social, cultural or political. In design studios students learn how to recognise these contexts, and use and reinterpret them for their own creative work.
Under the guidance of award-winning photographers and researchers, students develop knowledge and skills in traditional and expanded photography, screen-based media, video and moving image. Students have access to state-of-the-art facilities, including darkrooms, specialist colour-managed computer labs and fully equipped photographic studios. Equipment is constantly upgraded to ensure that students only work with the best and latest devices.
