During the course of the programme, students learn the visual design language of photography and how to use its analog and digital technical tools. It is our goal and responsibility to provide photographers graduating from us with credible professional knowledge, giving them the opportunity for continuous development and to stand their ground in any of the fields of photography.

To make students feel free to apply the possibilities of photography to formulate their ideas, they need to be aware of and possess its technique and technological innovations. Photographers graduating from our institution learn to articulate their thoughts through their future works and stand their ground in the field of applied arts. During practical work they will be capable of individual artistic activity. Critical thinking becomes natural for them, and also that they express their own and others’ artistic activities verbally as well in order to join national and international discourses.
