Photojournalism and Documentary Photography - University of Gloucestershire

**Why Photojournalism and Documentary Photography?** Our Photojournalism and Documentary Photography degree helps you build creative skills to produce engaging visual photo stories, along with professional knowledge and industry contacts for a successful career. You’ll learn about photography on location, exploring moving and still image and how to produce in-depth coverage of news topics and key societal issues. With opportunities for placements with organisations such as the Associated Press, ‘Daily Mail’, South West News Service, ‘The Sunday Times’, Magnum Photos (New York), Photofusion and WaterAid, our graduates stand out from the crowd. There’s also the chance to shadow photojournalists, work on live briefs and undertake documentary projects in locations such as Thailand, the Caribbean, Palestine, the Philippines and Nepal (additional costs may apply, see course web page for details). You’ll draw on the expertise of experienced lecturers and leading professional photographers, with previous guest speakers including Facundo Arrizabalaga, Melanie Friend and Crispin Hughes. Producing a professional portfolio to help launch your career, you could gain valuable industry exposure for your work, for example at the AOP Open national exhibition and the Royal Photographic Society’s annual international print exhibition. Taught in cutting-edge facilities including studios, a digital suite and darkrooms, using industry-standard cameras, the course also benefits from accreditation with ScreenSkills and affiliation with AOP (the Association of Photographers). **Why University of Gloucestershire?** We’ve been using our expertise to support and inspire students since 1847.
