We are pleased to announce the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master of Arts degree in Media Arts Cultures, organized jointly by Danube University Krems (Austria), Aalborg University (Denmark), University of Lodz (Poland) and City University of Hong Kong (China).

Associated partners: Ars Electronica, DAM, FACT, monochrom, Laboratory of Research in Art and Techno Science, transmediale, ZKM.

 

The objective of this Master program is to provide education and training for future specialists in Media Arts Cultures and prepare them for emerging careers in the creative and cultural sectors, research and academia.

Students from European or non-European countries will study as a group and in individually chosen modules on selected topics like Media Cultural Heritage, Archiving, Experience Design, Media Arts Theory, New Media Aesthetics, Curating & Arts Management, or Media Arts Futures. The language of instruction is English. As part of the program, students will complete an internship at one of the consortium’s full or associated partners and complete a Master’s thesis supervised by lecturers from the partner universities. MediaAC faculty include Ana Peraica, Christiane Paul, Erkki Huhtamo, Falk Heinrich, Harald Kraemer, Irina Aristarkhova, Jane Prophet, Jeffrey Shaw, Lev Manovich, Maciej Ozóg, Margit Rosen, Morten Sondergaard, Oliver Grau, Ryszard W. Kluszczyzski, Sean Cubitt, Wendy Coones and many others.

Media Arts Cultures is a mobility program, enabling students to study across Europe and in Asia. During the two-year program, each student will spend three semesters at three universities, and choose among the four in the final semester. After completing the program, students will receive a Joint Master degree in Media Arts Cultures from the universities they have attended. The program is 120 ECTS and allows graduates to further pursue a PhD within Europe or other international higher education regions.

A significant number of the best EU and non-EU candidates will be offered Erasmus+ fully funded scholarships, including living and travel expenses, for the duration of the program. As an internationally recognized Erasmus Mundus Joint Master degree, students accepted into the MediaAC program without Erasmus+ scholarships will have increased chances of securing funding from external-funding sources. Application information can be found here.

For applicants requesting an Erasmus+ scholarship via the MediaAC Consortium the deadline for submitting applications is January 1. For self-funded/externally-funded applicants the deadline for submitting applications is April 2015 for non-EU students and June 2015 for EU students.

This is a new Masters of Arts program funded by the European Union and recognized as a European Master of Excellence. This distinction is based on offering high-quality learning opportunities for students in an emerging field and also signifies the importance of Media Arts for the cultural future of Europe.

The EU support secured for 2014–2019 enables the MediaAC Consortium to concentrate on quality enhancements, innovation, excellence and internationalization, draw attention to the European Higher Education Area, and provide key competences and skills to graduates.
