The Digital Arts programme at the University of Malta  seeks to offer a comprehensive approach to image-making that not only encourages innovation by students through a practice-based research methodology, but also endeavours to provide the same students with the creative, artistic, intellectual and theoretical foundation upon which they can build their contributions to this dynamic field.

Through a combination of practical and theoretical modules, the course encourages the development of critical and original approaches to contemporary creative production and enables students to actively investigate the influence of new digital technologies in relation to creativity and communication. The programme provides a framework within which students are prepared for further academic research as well as integration into the various industries requiring digital creativity.
