Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts provides training for experts in animation and Film. The foundation of the School’s practice-oriented training in film is image and storytelling proficiency in film.


Graduates of the Master in Film programme at Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts are able to do the following: 

  • Devise creative projects of high artistic potential in a given professional context.
  • Plan and execute the creative process and overcome problems using appropriate methodological approaches.
  • Absorb new content, independently research and analyse topics in detail, and condense the information acquired in a synthesis that offers criteria and options for continuing the creative process.
  • Assess the individual interests of participating stakeholder groups and gauge their relevance to the project.
  • Provide information on the economic framework of the project environment in question and position their projects on the market.
  • Name and analyse reference works relevant to the project in question and use such knowledge to critically situate and reflect on their own work.
  • Locate their own work in a superordinate theoretical framework.
  • Develop a range of different solutions and justify their approach through logical argument.
  • Implement decisions satisfactorily in the form of convincing designs.
  • Critique other’s work professionally and accept as well as implement criticism. 
  • Graduates of the Master in Film programme have developed an artistic mindset that is reflected in independent creative praxis.

Programme Structure

  • Graduates who have specialised in Animation for the most part make a name for themselves as directors or take up responsible positions in large-scale animation film productions. 
  • But they may also position themselves in the commissioned productions field and work on commercial or applied animation productions, such as advertisement or didactic formats for museums and exhibitions.
