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
The fundamentals of this course consists of understanding the full spectrum of possibilities inherent in technical skills. Skills are important for optimal communication and a distinct and personal style. A balanced choice and correct execution of any chosen technique will make the work of an artist/ photographer readable and personal. In the technical skills course, the student will learn to analyze images and conduct research on available techniques. The process of continuous analysis and reflection helps to gain practical experience and to substantially improve the work. It is about skills and the ability to present professional images, tuned towards the needs of the professional field. The program consists of team-exercises and personal assignments. In time, it progresses from technical experimentation towards personal and content-orientated work. Towards the end of the course, the student will need to develop his or her own style more and more by making personal technical choices and approaches.
