Crossmedia Spaces

New: Master of Arts (M.A.) Communications Design
What is it?

The degree program is focused on interdisciplinary and cross-media presentations, with the aim of creating media-designed spaces - with digital and analog media, in real and virtual space, as locations for visitors to make experiences, to inform themselves and communicate.

The degree program therefore combines artistic and creative cross-media projects with courses in design theory and artistic conception, entrepreneurship as well as intercultural communication and presentation. In the first two semesters, the degree program focuses on the potential and competencies of cross-media design, and in the third semester students apply this knowledge and develop a creative solution in a master's project - preferably developed in team constellations.

The degree program consists of into three subject areas:

  • Interdisciplinary and cross-media design,
  • Artistic conception and design thinking,
  • Team building and project management,

The target audience of all the productions, whether they take place in public or semi-public places, is always passers-by in an evolving setting of various media impulses.

What can I do with it?

The goal of the master's degree program in Crossmedia Spaces is to develop students’ creative authorship and their self-image as creative professionals engaged in experimental explorative research. Graduates design spaces for the purposes of information and communication across all areas of society. Interactions with media presentations can be produced for a wide range of public and semi-public spaces - in museums and cultural institutions or in companies, at trade fairs or leisure facilities, in administrative and educational institutions or modes of transport.
