Description

The degree programme in photography gives students a broad knowledge of photography. The goal is for each student to develop their own visual language, acquire solid technical skills, as well as an understanding of what the professional field of photography looks like and how it works.
We offer an intensive course of studies which covers many different ways of working, including extensive focus on the students’ own work, group assignments, projects with customers, internships, and a great deal of individual mentoring. Collaboration with different institutions and businesses is a major part of the programme. We strive to give each student opportunities to establish themselves in the photography business during their course of studies, and to create the foundation for their future working life.
