Should I Do a Photography MA?

In this interactive workshop, Lucy Soutter takes you through the pros and cons of pursuing a masters degree in photography, whether or not you studied photography at BA level. The session will explore what different applicants might be hoping to gain from study at master’s level, what courses can realistically deliver in the current educational climate, how to develop the working and networking habits of successful MA students, and ways that the same goals might be met by studying independently. Spoiler alert: the answer to the headline question is “not necessarily”! The session should provide food for thought for anyone interested in advancing their photography practice and career.
