Photography BA (Hons)


This course runs in 2017/18.
In a fast-changing 24-hour multimedia landscape where everyone with a camera phone is a photographer, our BA Photography graduates stand out for their creativity, professionalism and critical understanding of the photographic medium. Our continually evolving course is directly informed by input from professional photographers, editors and curators.


“Revolutionary”; “Inspirational”; “Photographic heroes”. These are just some of the things people are saying about Photography at Coventry University, which was ranked the number one BA (Hons) Photography course in the UK by The Guardian in 2014-2015. Why? Because every day we set out to devise and deliver new answers to our core question: “What does it mean to be a 21st century photographer?” Our students spend three years exploring that question and our graduates know the answer. If you’d like to find out, then this could be the course for you.
