Students of the Photography BA programme can learn the basiscs of classic and contemporary photography and interdisciplinary creative strategies from illustrious teachers, in small group, using state-of-the-art technologies, to become style setters globally.
The programme is designed to train photographers with a thorough knowledge of photography and an autonomous vision, who are able to express their ideas on a variety of subjects using the diverse language of photography across various means, styles and genres.
Our long-standing Photography programme develops the visual, social and creative skills of students, opens up their mind to embrace current phenomena of the world, and prepares them for entering the MA programme that requires autonomous creative work.


An extensive museum pedagogy collaboration was launched by the Janus Pannonius Museum in 2019 under the name Op Art Academy, coordinating the work of students and teachers of four universities, including MOME. The resulting student designs and artworks are currently on display at the Museum Gallery and the Vasarely Museum in Pécs.

Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) further expands its international education portfolio following the successful launch of its first two English MA programmes. Students looking to continue their education in the creative industries will now have the opportunity to study Animation and Design in English language from September 2023, in addition to Photography and Interaction Design, building a valuable network and gaining future-shaping, competitive knowledge while still at university.

This year’s Paris Photo, the largest international photography fair took place between 10 and 13 November in Paris. Whether at the fair itself or at the accompanying events, the works of our students, teachers and alumni were featured throughout.



Nothing is what it appears to be. And that’s when something appears to be anything in the first place. But what is a trick? Chicanery, subterfuge, finesse, and mystery.
