The MA in Imaging Art and Science is part of a dual pathway MA/MSc programme in Imaging Art and Science

The MA/MSc in Imaging Art and Science is a unique programme in Imaging, designed to equip students with advanced skills in areas relating to image conception, formation, capture, analysis, evaluation and visualisation from the perspectives of art, science and technology.

The University of Westminster was the first institution in the UK to provide academic degrees in Photography, Imaging Science and Technology and has produced world leaders in the fields of Image Science, Imaging Technologies, Photographic Arts and Photographic Theory.

The MA/MSc in Imaging Art and Science is a cross-disciplinary programme built on our experience and proficiency in these fields, run in collaboration by the Westminster School of Media Arts & Design and the Faculty of Science & Technology. It provides cutting edge education, supported by external links to creative and scientific industries.


Course structure and module contents (MA Pathway)

  • Methods-Process-Context
  • Transactions and Public Engagement
  • Colour Imaging
  • Image Quality and Content
  • Imaging Arts
  • Imagine Science
  • Research Project

The student must take at least 2 module options from the course. One option can be taken from other relevant postgraduate courses within Westminster School of Media, Arts and Design, or the Faculty of Science and Technology.


Normally, applicants will require a First or Upper second Honours degree in photography, media, fine art, or other relevant academic discipline; or equivalent experience in a photography, art, and/or media related industrial context.

If English is your second language an IELTS score of 7.0 overall, with 6.0 in each element is required.

Career Prospects

Depending on the tailored module/content selection and Major Project topic, graduates of the MA/MSc will be able to work in a range of fields, including: imaging practice and production (e.g. fine art/ commercial photography, film post production and special effects); image management, picture research, curating (e.g. photographic libraries, museums and archives); scientific imaging and processes (e.g. biomedical imaging labs, image processing and analysis, colour management), imaging science research (e.g. optical system development, image quality, imaging performance). Graduates may also work in a number of other areas, including imaging education, research labs and creative applications.

Studying in a multidisciplinary environment will equip graduates with a lateral approach to problem solving, and the ability to communicate disciplinary issues to wide audiences, including the public. Collaboration with the industry will provide graduates with real world research experience, an attribute that is highly prized by prospective employers.

A number of our graduates now work in leading imaging centers in the industry, such as Apple Research Labs, Aptina Imaging, ON Semiconductor, The Home Office Centre for Applied Science and Technology, Moving Picture Company (MPC), Framestore, or research and teach in academic institutions internationally.
