About this course

Founded in 1887, RMIT has the oldest and most established photography program in the world.

Situated in the heart of vibrant Melbourne, this program facilitates learning in purpose-designed studios using up-to-date technology and digital photographic equipment.

This program integrates theoretical, conceptual and industry based models of photographic practice as they apply to the media and communication industry. You will actively engage in the production of images that speak to the vibrant cultural dynamic of contemporary image production and exchange. You will be challenged to produce work that responds to the critical discourses in both local and global contexts and you will explore emerging technologies, while also analysing and synthesising their relevance to your own image making.

As a professional practitioner with specialist knowledge in photography, you will have the awareness and skills to interpret and shape your field once you graduate. The areas that our graduates have moved into include; fashion, advertising architecture, documentary, photojournalism, editorial, publishing, photo editing, post- production, publishing, exhibition practice, curating and teaching.
