On the Master of Science in Media Design at FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences, you will learn about time-based media such as video, 3D animation, motion graphics and their applications in various media formats and channels.


Over the past few years, new forms of video production have emerged which are strongly shaped by the opportunities offered by computer-aided production techniques. Films tell their stories in digitally generated artificial worlds. Sometimes these virtual worlds merge with real-world scenarios, graphical and typographical elements or turn into interactive environments providing an augmented experience. This wide range of possibilities is reflected in the diversity of narrative concepts in modern media production.

Key facts:

The course is based on seminars and workshops dealing with the narrative dramaturgy of film, video and computer games. Interdisciplinary subjects on the use of video in interactive environments and exhibitions as well as business courses and international guest lectures round off the curriculum.

In the Master of Science in Media Design at FH Joanneum University of Applied Sciences, you will further develop your expertise in specialist fields of design such as motion design, on-air design, game design and online publishing as well as in various interdisciplinary settings. You will focus on new narrative forms, combine conceptual and design content and take account of interdisciplinary aspects.
