Master of Arts in Photography

Study photography: develop your own distinct signature and refine your style

Our MA programme will deepen your knowledge of the diverse applications of photography. You will get a better understanding of contemporary art practices and requirements, and will optimise both the artistic and professional potential. Our curriculum encourages you to explore the significance of the photographic medium within a cultural, political and social context, and to develop an individual vision while interacting with current trends in art and design. You will also learn to write and speak about your work with an advanced level of fluency and to frame your practice in historical and critical contexts. By the time you graduate with the Master’s in Photography, you will have acquired the skills to think conceptually and to realise your ideas in artistic and practical projects using state-of-the-art technology.

Our campuses are equipped with professional workspaces and an extensive range of equipment. Facilities include spacious photo and green screen studios, an analogue darkroom, a scanning and print studio, film editing suites and sound studios. Students also have the opportunity to borrow a range of photographic equipment free of charge for projects both on and off campus. This includes digital and analogue camera equipment, professional lighting and other accessories.

At the University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE), our educational approach is to enable students to discover and fully develop their individual talents. Teaching takes place in small groups in a friendly, informal atmosphere. You will have the opportunity to actively shape your studies and your career path by choosing your own specialisations and selecting courses from a range of interdisciplinary subjects. Our professors will support your individual progress helping you to develop your own distinct signature and to refine your talents and strengths. The master’s programme includes practical projects led by distinguished photographers and artists, as well as international study trips and workshops in New York, Iceland or different cities in Asia to help you prepare for your future career.

Our modern, centrally located Berlin campus is a meeting place for students from over 60 countries. Famous for its lively arts scene, in recent years, Berlin has also become one of Europe’s most important start-up capitals.
