The Master Media Innovation is an international programme with lecturers from a number of academic and commercial disciplines in the field of digital media. The programme has a unique, multidisciplinary approach; training students to acquire analytical skills and to look beyond the surface of digital media, while encouraging them to apply those skills practically in innovative media concepts. The programme covers 12 months and it comprises four modules (44 ECTS), an industry case (3 ECTS) and a graduation project (13 ECTS). Details on these aspects can be found as follows:
The Media theory module introduces you to the field of (contemporary) Media Studies and Media Theory. Media Studies is defined as an academic interdisciplinary field of study that deals with the content, history and effects of various media. In order to reflect this interdisciplinary nature, the module will introduce several theoretical angles and subjects including, but not limited to, transmedia, semiotics, game design, and narratology.
The Business module aims at providing you with knowledge, tools and practical insight necessary in managing intellectual property, strategy, innovation, entrepreneurship and consumer behaviour. In addition to the generic concepts and topics, particular characteristics in the media and entertainment industry will be emphasised.
Media Technology is developed on three pillars: methods for understanding and eliciting user requirements; principles for prototyping the user interface and user interaction for the proposed concept; and the aspects addressing the technical feasibility of the proposed concept. The backdrop framework of the module is human-computer interaction (HCI) and user-centred design. The module assumes that students possess no prior technical or programming knowledge and is thus suitable for students from all disciplines.
Research and Communication Studies
The objective of this module is twofold; first, it provides students with a solid understanding of research methods and the general knowledge and basic practical skills of conducting applied research at master’s level and applying research insights to create innovations. Secondly, it gives the students a theoretical grounding in communication theory and academic skills and theory-based argumentation in general. These two objectives are thus entwined throughout the duration of the programme.
The Master Media Innovation offers you the required qualifications for a range of media positions including, but not limited to: product owner, innovation lead, creative lead, digital marketer, creative consultant, digital strategist, and digital brand strategist. After your graduation you are entitled to the degree of Master of Arts. Webinar Master Media Innovation Do you want to learn more about Master Media Innovation?
