Our society is becoming more mobile: Terms like “space” and “distance” are undergoing a fundamental transformation thanks to digital media. Today, there’s a whole sector of industry devoted to communicating and producing information, brands, and experiences in media spaces.
The University of Applied Sciences Europe provides you with the skills to transform communication within virtual and physical spaces into inspiring and lasting experiences. In the Media Spaces master’s programme, you’ll learn how to analyse and locate spatial, moving, and non-linear forms of expression and how to apply them to your own spatial concepts. You’ll be in the perfect position to develop complex and advanced design and technological solutions for challenges of a multi-disciplinary nature thanks to the sound media competence you’ll have as a graduate.
The programme - interdisciplinary courses, projects and more
The Media Spaces master’s programme is a project-based degree programme and perfect for students who have completed undergraduate studies at university level in an artistic, design, or media-related subject area. At the University of Applied Sciences Europe, you’ll have the unique opportunity to contribute your own personal design skills and background and make something meaningful out of them – whether in communication design, media design, architecture, stage design, design management, or media theory.
The first two semesters consist of interdisciplinary project-based studies, the theory of various media and process-based events, as well as a catalog of compulsory courses. You will work in a team throughout an entire semester on a joint challenge and go through the typical phases of a project, just as you would in your future career: from research, planning, and concept creation to realisation, documentation, and presentation.
The entire 3rd semester is dedicated to your master’s thesis. This module includes the completion of your thesis, which consists of a design-in-practice part and an academic part.
The programme offers an in-depth, hands-on approach, which creates unlimited opportunities for you to explore new, hybrid ideas and discover new career areas – above all within in the digital media realm.
*Students who are currently completing their bachelor’s degree can also apply. Please refer to our admission requirements for more information.
Your career options with a degree in media spaces
Graduates of the master’s degree programme in Media Spaces are able to analyse and locate spatial, moving, and nonlinear forms of expression and then apply the results to create their own space concept. Thanks to solid competence in media, they are able to develop design-based and technically sophisticated solutions for complex, multidisciplinary challenges.
Furthermore, they have excellent knowledge in methods for planning, organising, and production technologies, and the means to successfully realise projects. These can range from installations, set design, play places, and moving 3D images to guidance systems, brand presentations, architecture, and interior design to exhibition and event design, the visualisation of “data spaces”, and the generation of scientific visuals.
In addition, the master’s degree programme in Media Spaces qualifies graduates to work in interdisciplinary, intercultural, and international project teams and to lead these, as well as to be an entrepreneur or freelancer in the artistic, design field. It also forms the ideal foundation for a high-caliber, leadership career in the media department at a company or for taking the path of an academic career.
