“Media AC Program not only changed my career opportunities and job perspectives in an increasingly competitive labour market, but took my career to the next level. The program gave me a global and multidisciplinary perspective, a broader view of the Europe and more structured and consistent way of thinking and analyzing. … The program also strengthened my expert role within national and international decision-making processes. Two-year Master’s in Media Arts Cultures gave me the keys to many professional doors and information networks that otherwise would have been closed and inaccessible for me. … The outstanding team at the Department for Image Science does an excellent job to create a deep network of highly trained researchers, curators, media artists and cultural practitioners who will hold leadership positions in the future of arts and digital culture.”

“MediaAC creates a unique opportunity for its participants to be exposed to the New Media Art scenes of at least three countries which, in my view, is crucial to developing a nuanced approach to the study of contemporary art. The academic flexibility and freedom that the course offers coupled with the unflinching support of colleagues and distinguished faculty was instrumental in receiving multiple ivy-league scholarship offers to continue my research at the PhD level.
The multiple discursive, technical and political contexts within which the study of sound-art was introduced during the second semester helped me develop my intended doctoral project which seeks to introduce sound studies within the context of South Asia (Bengal), thereby interrogating and exploring some of the underlying Eurocentric assumptions that currently govern the discipline. ” Ronit Ghosh / India / student 2017-2019
