Administrative
Administrative people are interested in work that offers security and a sense of being part of a larger process. They may be at their best operating under supervisors who give clear guidelines, and performing routine tasks in a methodical and reliable way.

They tend to enjoy clerical and most forms of office work, where they perform essential administrative duties. They often form the backbone of large and small organisations alike. They may enjoy being in charge of office filing systems, and using computers and other office equipment to keep things running smoothly. They usually like routine work hours and prefer comfortable indoor workplaces.

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.
