I hear the thunder crashing, the sky is dark

The Bachelor Program for Photography has been included in Valand Academy, at the University of Gothenburg since 2012. This is the only higher education program in photography in Sweden. The program is based on independent artistic study while also providing training in the use of the photographic image as a means of communication in a wider context. The Bachelor program consists of three years of study, the last term concluding with an individual thesis presentation.
