PROFICIENCY & IN-DEPTH RESEARCH

In the second year, you’ll dive further into specific aspects of your chosen specialisation Fiction or Documentary.

The difference is primarily manifested in long-term photography courses, taught by internationally acclaimed specialists with different backgrounds in photography. An important goal for the second year is to have your personality shine through in your projects. This ambition is helped by courses like Civil Society Lab where you will be encouraged to explore your fascinations outside the world of art and photography. 

As the focus on technique subsides after the second year, this is the last year to bring your technical skills to the highest level possible. You’ll deepen your knowledge and experience of moving image and interactive media in courses that are tailored to your chosen direction. You also follow a course that entirely focuses on presentation techniques - in line with the ambitions within your work.

The Individual Study Track (IST) – starting in the second year – provides you an opportunity to follow courses outside the department or to do projects that complement your personal interests. You can also choose to follow an exchange semester at one of our partner institutions abroad.

One of the highlights of the second year is the international fieldtrip where you will produce a body of work on a self-chosen topic within one week. The project is preceded by intensive preparatory research. After the trip, you and your peers will collaborate in editing and producing a publication in a one-week workshop.

Short description
Based on a given theme, you go looking for opportunities to bring perspective and vision to a desired subject. Doing content research on the theme, obtaining practical information and establishing contacts, are now key ingredients. This time, however, the focus is on the development of a personal visual concept that focuses on the essence of your interpretation regarding the subject. It elaborates on all the elements that belong to concept development, namely: the relationship between research, idea generation and image research. Some attention is dedicated to writing a project proposal. The end result will be presented as a periodical publication/ magazine with text, possibly as an app. This program works in collaboration with Sociology, Art History and Technical courses to create links between theory and practice. Partnering is encouraged with each other.
