Preparing students for the demands of the emerging futures
in the creative and cultural sectors of our digital age.
The Media Arts Cultures programme is developed between four consortium partners. The curriculum draws upon the strengths of each partner and offers students an unusual chance to study on the culture of media arts in Europe.
In the MediaAC curricula, the students will achieve for the first time internationally advanced historical and theoretical knowledge in Media Arts in an innovative combination with creative, artistic, curatorial, and technological practices. They will get language competences and intercultural training for European and world-wide cooperation (especially Asia).
In the first semester, MediaAC starts in Austria with “Histories and Archiving” focusing on the humanities-oriented study of the Histories of Media Arts Science and Technology and the relation and importance of innovative archiving for future research in Media Arts Heritage.
In the second semester, the programme continues in Denmark with the applied processes of initiating and realizing experience design projects and their relationships to academic methodologies and the non-academic private and public-sector activities. Students will complete an internship collecting experiences on-site with associated partners.
The third semester, based in either in the innovative European media environment of Poland or the vibrant Asian media culture of Hong Kong, will concentrate on the development of the production of knowledge and creative output within the evolving Media Arts Cultures and help define international directions for future needs within the field to be addressed in research during the final Master’s Thesis semester.
The Master’s Thesis semester (semester four) can be completed at any of the three EU universities under supervision of faculty from all 4 Partners. Special emphasis is given to transferable skills (i.e., research methods, presentation skills, language and leadership) and to real-world connections.
