Our Photography MA programme trains open-minded and highly autonomous artists who are able to respond sensitively and progressively to the challenges of the world, supported by state-of-the-art technology and renowned teachers.
This long-standing programme covers the development and full-spectrum implementation of long-term photography projects; design and art research; the development of the Central and Eastern European vision of the genre; and the exploration of its intersections.
Thanks to their solid knowledge and skills, artists graduating from our programme can hold their own in the international photography arena. We place a strong emphasis on collaborations with professional partners, and the successful participation of our students in international and domestic competitions, fairs and festivals.
