Photography is a form of art and expression. It is a form of graphic communication that can be instantly understood by a global audience to showcase facts, inform, educate, entertain, reform, or share experiences. Photography will take you through visual experiences and critical thinking: your photos can tell a thousand words.Studying photography at UOW will teach you both analogue and digital technologies across a diverse range of studio subjects, whilst developing an understanding of traditions and concepts relevant to photography in historical, theoretical and contemporary visual art contexts. You will develop your own style through creative processes, conceptual skills and applying your knowledge into practice.
Completing a major (or two) as part of your Bachelor of Arts degree will give you a set of skills that relate to the discipline you are studying and also generic skills in critical thinking, analysis, cultural intelligence, and conceptual frameworks. Because you can do more than one major, it’s a good idea to choose widely in your first year, before settling on a major/or majors in your second year.To qualify for award of this degree, a student must satisfactorily complete at least 144 credit points, comprised of the following:1. ASSH101 - Introduction to Arts and the Humanities (6 credit points).

A second major study (minimum 48 credit points and maximum 60 credit points) OR, a minor study (minimum of 24 credit points) from within the Arts and Humanities;4.
