What is it?

The master's degree program Creative Media Conception trains creative filmmakers in the fields of storytelling, creation, and innovative media production. In particular, the degree program is designed to develop students’ conceptual and creative leadership skills. In the future, moving images will be the most important component in every area of media communication. Using scientific research, analysis and evaluation methods, students will learn to present social topics in film productions in a way that is appropriate for the target group and will be responsible for their distribution. The degree program offers all applicants with a first degree in design and/or media studies the opportunity to develop important competences and skills for their career in the film industry. In the modules of the 3-semester Master of Arts degree program, students acquire creative, conceptual and both academic and artistic skills. The critical analytical examination of relevant topics is designed to develop the students’ self-image as future journalistic media professionals and enhance their awareness of the social responsibility that comes with this profession. The three modules “Content Development”, “Conceptual Design” and “Media Technology and Production” are the core areas of the degree program. These are accompanied by a project which is both practical and scientific in nature. Modules such as "Media and Communication Science", "Media Culture" and "Market and Media Research" provide the media science content. The module "Organization and Entrepreneurship for Screen Arts" further develops the future graduates’ management and leadership skills. The degree program concludes with the Master Project, which is a combination of theoretical-scientific work and practical projects. The master's degree program is international in its orientation and offers students the opportunity to study at partner universities abroad. Among others, we cooperate closely with the universities River Falls (USA), Vienna University of Applied Sciences (Austria), Volda University (Norway) and the International College of NIDA Bangkok (Thailand).
