Photography is an international language with its own rules and ways of finding legitimacy. It can allegorise complex relationships, tell stories, and kindle emotions without using words. It influences the way we think and act and affects how we perceive the world. It’s ubiquitous and impossible to push out of your mind. As you can imagine, understanding photography as a medium and how to use it consciously is not only indispensable in artistic practice, but also in advertising and editorial occupations.

The University of Applied Sciences Europe has a pioneering study programme in this field. We were among the first German private universities to establish a photography programme. During your studies, you’ll familiarise yourself with and try out various photographic genres, such as portrait, fashion, art, and documentary.

Our university focuses on your development. That's why we teach in small learning groups and in a friendly and personal atmosphere. We’ll oversee your individual development process and help you define your talents and strengths, while helping you develop your own visual signature. You will be taught by renowned photographers and study at a campus that is centrally located, equipped with the latest technology (photo studio, print & scan lab, dark room, camera equipment, MacPools, etc.), and that is known for its international and English-speaking character.

At the University of Applied Sciences Europe you even get the possibilty to actively shape your studies and your career path. Depending on your personal career goals, you will select your own specialisations and choose from a range of interdisciplinary subjects. The programmes taught at our university also include practical projects with top partners from the creative industry and field trips and exhibitions (to places like Paris, New York, Vietnam, Iceland, etc.), which will prepare you perfectly for your dream job. As a photography graduate, you’ll have learned how to translate ideas and emotions into complex images under professional conditions.
