Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Education: Photographic History MA / online, modular / starts January 2022

Leicester's De Montfort University has re-launched its MA in photographic history with an innovative new distance learning approach to teaching that allows students to take the course at their own pace. The new course starts from January 2022 and then runs on a termly rolling basis meaning students can join at three points during the year, building up credits to a full MA.

The postgraduate course builds on remote teaching expertise developed over the past two years and will particularly suit students and those simply wishing to learn, especially from outside of the UK and unable to commit to full-time, or even traditional part-time, study. Teaching is asynchronous except for tutorials which are by appointment. All students will have anytime access to audio and/or visual material of lectures. 

Units of 15 learning credits can be completed on a standalone basis offering those simply wishing to develop knowledge in particular areas a rigorous and assessed pathway to do so. Any credits can be used to extend this in to a full MA. Those looking to study full-time can complete a MA in one year, or part-time in two years. 

The standard modules are: 

  • Learning Photographic History Online (compulsory for all students)
  • Photographic Historiography I (15 credits)
  • Photographic Historiography II (15 credits)
  • Photography and the Arts (15 credits)
  • Photography, Science and Technology (15 credits)
  • Photography, Ethics and Emotions (15 credits)
  • Material Histories 1830s to 1930s (15 credits)
  • Material Histories 1930s to Now (15 credits)
  • Photography and Politics (15 credits)
  • Photography and Digital Politics (15 credits)
  • Fieldwork (30 credits)
  • Dissertation or Heritage Project (60 credits)

Each 15 credit module encompasses 150 hours of learning, researching and assessment. The 30 credit module and 60 credit module are 300 and 600 hours respectively.
