The cycle of studies in Photography aims at the qualified training of artists and photographers endowed with skills and critical capacity to develop the photographic discourse in its various aspects, both professional and authorial. In this sense, there is a strong practical component that enables the acquisition of technical skills and encourages experimentation and authorial development. The theoretical component aims to develop discursive and critical skills, as well as a historical and political awareness, which encourages students to have an innovative and challenging practice. In view of the rapid and successive transformations in the field of image making and, therefore, in the paradigms of photography, the course presents a wide range of curricular units that allow the transdisciplinarity between photography and areas that allow the exploration of other media and formats that are fundamental for a contemporary photographic discourse, supported by essential technical support and quality infrastructures and equipment.
