BA Photography (7 Semesters)

The PHOTOGRAPHY bachelor programme focuses specifically on the aspect of media. Students acquire the technical competence to successfully work as photographer, photo designer and/or in an instructional field of work. The programme is oriented towards professional practice and conveys comprehensive knowledge on the production, distribution and reception of the medium of photography.

While the first two semesters cover the basics in media and creative work, the second part of the programme features six different fields of specialisation: photojournalism, advertising photography, editorial photography, documentary photography, artistic-conceptual photography and new media.

The scientific subjects provide multifaceted insights into theories on art, media and design. The workshops are equipped with state-of-the-art photo equipment and enable a contemporary digital workflow from the moment a picture is taken to the final print. The programme is especially directed at applicants who already possess basic knowledge in photography and would like to acquire substantiated qualification in the various occupational fields of image production, image placement and image usage.

The PHOTOGRAPHY bachelor programme lasts 7 semesters and is completed with an exam for the Bachelor of Arts degree.
