Study and Work in Photojournalism - Distance Education Course
To improve your understanding of ethical and social issues involved with photojournalism and develop your ability to take photographs to specification, submitting those images for publication in a periodical (ie. newspaper, magazine or e-zine).
• Knowledge and experience in photography
• Medium level computer skills, or higher.
Under guidance of a mentor (a photography/ journalism tutor), you will learn to produce images to specific criteria and upload them to an online student magazine.
You will come away with at least one published photo story and possibly an accompanying article.
No matter what you want to photograph, you will find this a great learning experience.
VALUE OF THIS COURSE
With so many would-be photographers around, publishers can afford to be very choosy. Most will only accept work from photographers who have already been published, but getting that first work published can be a daunting and difficult task. Many very good photographers just never get published at all.
This module provides our students with just what they need: an opportunity to get work published.
On graduation, you will have at least one photograph published (ideally more) in an online publication that you can show to potential employers, which will increase your chances of being employed or published in future.
An average student can successfully complete this course in 100 hours.
If you pace yourself and spend that amount of time, you will probably be working to an expected level. You may spend more or less time, as this is a general guideline only.
