The guiding principle of this programme is that successful media innovations are often not brand new, but rather, they build on existing, recognisable elements. These elements, or codes, are the building blocks that can be found in any media product. In this master, we shed light on these building blocks from different theoretical perspectives. And, once you understand the codes behind a media product, you can make new connections. This is how you arrive at new concepts that are innovative and future-oriented.
The programme has a unique, multidisciplinary approach. Not only will it train you to acquire analytical skills, teach you to look beyond the surface of digital media and distinguish crucial digital processes, but it will also teach you to transform analytical insights into the building blocks by means of which you can design tomorrow’s media products. During this programme, you will design and deliver several concepts.
