The MA in Photographic History and Practice is the first course of its kind in the
UK. It lays the foundations for understanding the scope of photographic history and
provides the tools to carry out the independent research in this larger context,
working in particular from primary source material. In addition to our collaboration
with the Wilson Centre for Photography Studies in London, we will work with the
collections of the National Media Museum, Bradford, the Central Library, Birmingham,
the British Library and private collections throughout Britain. Students handle
photographic material, learn analogue photographic processes, write history from
objects in collections, compare historical photographic movements, and debate the
canon of photographic history. They also learn about digital preservation and access
issues through practical design projects involving Website and database design.
Research Methods are a core component, providing students with essential handling,
writing, digitizing and presentation skills needed for MA and Research level work.
Further modules will encourage independent thinking in theory and in history
writing, introduce students to methodologies commonly encountered in photographic
history, and set the students on a course for finding their own MA dissertation
topic. Students receive expert advice on the thesis topic of their choosing, which
is written in the summer months and submitted in September, one year after the
course begins, in the case of full time study, or two years in the case of
part-time. For further details on the course and application process, please
