Fully online distance learning Photographic History MA Programme / from September 2022

In September 2022, we are launching a fully online distance learning Photographic History MA Programme at De Montfort University; anyone can apply no matter where you are in the world.

Our Photographic History MA will allow you to investigate societal and cultural photographic practices alongside the cultural and social significance of the medium throughout its history. As well as engaging you with digital and analogue photographic image-objects, histories, and theories, it will equip you with key research and professional skills to prepare you for further study and for a wide range of possible careers in the culture sector.

The flexible module choice of the Programme is one of its main features:

  • Both full-time and part-time students will be able to focus their studies on the subjects they are most interested in, while the Programme’s asynchronous model of delivery will allow you to pursue your studies at your own pace.
  • Part-time students will be able to complete their studies in two years or more, making it easier for you to study around your job, family, and other commitments.
  • Archivists, librarians, curators, and other field professionals are welcome to take only a few modules as a part of your professional development.

We will run one mandatory module that has been designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills needed to fully benefit from the online learning mode.

All Module Leaders on the Programme are members of the internationally renowned Photographic History Research Centre (PHRC) at De Montfort University. Through their modules you will gain knowledge about a wide scope of subjects. Some of the modules on offer include Photographic Historiography; Photography, Science and Technology; Photography, Ethics and Emotions; Material Histories; and Photography and Digital Politics.
