**Why study this course?** This innovative Photography BA undergraduate course is taught in the heart of London's art and media hub where you'll find inspiration all around you. You'll develop essential digital and analogue photography skills alongside moving image expertise, as well as learning about the industry, exploring links with other art forms and discovering the history and aesthetics of photography through theory and practice. In the most recent (2015-16) Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education (DLHE) survey, 100% of graduates from this course were in work or further study within six months. **More about this course** On this forward-looking Photography BA undergraduate course you'll develop the creative practice and portfolio needed for a career as a professional photographer. The degree covers both digital and analogue photography, and is taught at one of the UK’s few art schools equipped with both colour and black-and-white darkroom facilities. As well as gaining vital practical experience through studio and workshop sessions, you’ll study the relevant theory and contemporary practice within the industry. You’ll also have the opportunity to find out how photography is linked to moving image and other art forms, as well as putting your own knowledge into practice through collaboration with students on other art-based courses. We'll introduce you to how the industry works so you can learn about the advantages offered by digital and social media, as well as honing the writing skills you’ll need to create funding proposals, promotional copy and artist statements. As you progress through your undergraduate degree, you’ll be able to focus your learning on your personal areas of interest. You will network, discuss and explore ideas while also participating in relevant field trips and workshops. Within the School, you’ll be supported by our team of experienced tutors, all of whom are active practitioners and regularly showcase their work nationally and internationally. Alongside regular University exhibitions of your on-going work, which will be open to the public, you’ll be encouraged to exhibit your own work through the local arts groups we work with, including Alternative Arts, Photomonth Festival, Four Corners Film and Photography, London Independent Photographers and the Uncertain States group. You’ll also have access and the chance to contribute to the East End Photography Archive at The Cass. **What our students say** "This is an enjoyable and rewarding course which provides an exciting engagement with current photography practice. It allowed me to develop my own approach to the discipline, equipping me with a range of subject-specific and transferable skills. It also provided me with the experience and confidence to go on to my MA." Elizabeth Vicary, former student
