Master's Degree in Photography and Design
The MA Photography & Design course at ELISAVA is a taught, practice-based programme, which attracts students from around the world and approaches photography as an open visual discipline in where you are encouraged to confidently produce complex and extended photographic projects as well as engage with contemporary, critical, experimental and speculative approaches to photography. The course places an emphasis on innovation, experimentation, and intellectual and practical enquiry in where students are encouraged to actively engage with contemporary photographic art practice through publication, exhibition and participation in live projects.
The course offers a dynamic and exciting environment for studying the practice of photography enabling students to acquire advanced photographic skills and apply them to complex, self-generated projects, and engaging with different technical and theoretical practices about the image. This characterises our committed study at postgraduate level, bringing photographic education up to date with contemporary photographic practice. It also pays attention to the dissemination of photographic work, exhibition & publication and focuses on the reasons by which the meaning of an image is shaped by its use and contextualization.
