    Yes they do. They even have PhD for Degree.

    There are No Diploma or Degree Courses in Photography in Singapore.

    I am holding a Degree in Photography which I graduated in RMIT. It use to be only pure photography. The department have change a lot..........since I left. It's more expensive too. It use to be AUS$14,000 a year but now it's AUS$16,000. It's a 3 year course, which they go thru the Advance Basics.

    They only take in 60 students a year. 30 Science and 30 Arts.

    First year it's a All Photography Fundamentals Basics which you must pass.

    Second year you are to choose a few subjects to see what you like to go into. Compulsory to pass all subjects again.

    Third and final year....you specialized in an area. Jobs will be given but not all students will get it. This is the time you start to do your PR skills and start to nego with clients. You will have a mentor with you for whole year and he will guide you too. If you are lazy, your mentor will not pass you too.

    This is just the outline of the 3 years course.

    eh im not sure if there are diploma or degree in photography in spore... but in lasalle nafa and the new ntu faculty you can choose photography as your major in your final year and complete you degree in mass confusion / communication or visual comm

    number two: getting a degree dont gaurantee you any job anywhere... but it helps, a degreee would be great discipline in your mind. therefore it will make you a very good technician fer sure.
    take for example geoff ang....he quit school after 15, he's like raking in big bucks now...so.... in the creative industry...degree or not is secondary... your portfolio is primary!
