Course Contents: What Are My Study Options?

The search for a personal signature and form of expression is one of the essential aims of the Master’s degree course in Media Art and Design. You will build on and expand the basic knowledge you have acquired from your previous university education or professional experience, bringing your creative potential to full fruition. Once you have decided on your specialist subject in art and design from the individual core subjects of the various chairs, you will have the opportunity to work on it more intensively on a project-oriented and interdisciplinary basis. You can also integrate further modules from the university’s other degree courses into your personal study programme.
