Photographers play an essential role in capturing the images of our times. The power of an image cannot be underestimated. The Bachelor of Arts with a Photography Major gives you the practical skills and theoretical knowledge to create powerful images now and into the future.

You will develop your practical skills through hands-on experiences, including working with community groups and other organisations, culminating in a public exhibition of your works.

Your portfolio of work will cover genres and styles that effectively communicate with people in various contexts. Your portfolio will also be an effective advertisement for your creativity and skills as you begin your chosen career.

Combining a major in Photography with a second Major or Minor, such as Journalism, Film & Screen Production, Social Justice or Environmental Management, will provide you with a skill set that will open up several employment opportunities.

Skills such as working to a creative brief, collaboration, critical thinking, objective analysis, constructive feedback, and successful management of workflow and time pressures will also stand you in good stead with employers.

The Bachelor of Arts majoring in Photography can be studied as part of a double degree. Graduates can later undertake a Master of Arts (MA), Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD).

Photography is available as a Major and Minor in the following programs, including double-degree variations:
