Program description:

The master’s program addresses graduate students in visual arts, architecture, music, theater and film, as well as graduates from other fields who are interested in a theoretical and practical interdisciplinary approach to new digital technologies in visual, performing and cinematic arts. Each semester, under the coordination of national and international artists and specialists, students will conduct interactive artistic creation projects, collaborating with other graduate students from the  performing arts and documentary filmmaking master programs.  In order to graduate, next to the dissertation thesis, students will prepare a practical individual interdisciplinary project.

The thoretical courses and practical projects will help to understand the most important trends and developments in the field of interactive arts in the context of the new media platforms and will develop transdisciplinary artistic expression skills in professional contexts.
