In 2018 PSC will launch its Master of Arts - Photography program - the first of its kind in Australia and in the Asia-Pacific region.

This program introduces an innovative and cutting-edge curriculum targeted at photographic practitioners from diverse backgrounds and is taught in an immersive environment, and delivered flexibly across three semesters (18 months). The program's delivery model is designed around blocks of study and ongoing, regular sessions over an 18-month period. With intensive periods of seminars, workshops, lectures and labs, the program is designed to produce results in a supportive and rigorous environment. As Master of Arts Photography students, you will be taught and supervised by Australia’s leading photographers, artists, academics, curators, writers & publishers. You will also be mentored by one of our international mentors drawn from the world's leading photo agencies, galleries, and publishers.

The program

The Master of Arts - Photography is flexibly designed to embrace and adapt to change whilst providing a stable base that establishes a platform for a personal and detailed exploration of photographic culture, theory and most importantly, practice. The program creates a framework for students to produce a significant volume of practical photographic-based work with an informed approach to its production and a critical awareness of contemporary modes of presentation and distribution. 

Details of the program's content is available in the MA Photography Guide available on this page.


The MA Photography is designed to launch your career on the national and international stage. You will be taught and mentored by leaders in the field, covering a broad spectrum of practices and professional outcomes.

The program will prepare you for professional careers in photography and the broader creative arts industries including roles in multimedia, journalism, photographic publishing, curatorial and project management, academia and in teaching photography. The program is flexible enough to allow you to achieve your professional goals, and expand your practice in a supportive and world-leading environment.

Becoming a student on the MA Photography at Australia's number one photography college also means you will join a network of international photographers, publishers, curators, festival directors and writers that will enable you to take your practice onto a world stage.
