Social?
Social
The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

Summary... header image

BA Photography fully integrates theory and practice throughout each year. Adopting a hands-on approach, the programme equips students with key skills, while encouraging students to reflect on their actions and practices.

The theoretical (Critical Studies) side of the programme provides students with a critical understanding of the context of media and visual arts production, while fostering intellectual enquiry into the nature of society and culture.

Photography practice modules are underpinned by theoretical study of photographic technologies and images in the social and institutional context in which the photographer operates. In thinking about their own work and how they produce it, students articulate a critical response to the images they create.
