Erasmus Mundus Joint Master of Arts Degree in Media Arts Cultures
The call for applications for the Erasmus Mundus Joint Master of Arts Degree in Media Arts Cultures has been announced. This is a new masters of arts programme 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. Erasmus Mundus Joint Master is organized jointly by Danube University Krems (Austria), Aalborg University (Denmark), University of Lodz (Poland) and City University of Hong Kong (China). Associated partnersare Ars Electronica, DAM, FACT, monochrom, Laboratory of Research in Art and Techno Science, transmediale and ZKM.
The objective of this Master Programme 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 and Arts Management, or Media Arts Futures. The language of instruction is English. As part of the programme, 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.
Media Arts Cultures is a mobility programme, enabling students to study across Europe and in Asia. During the two-year programme, each student will spend three semesters at three universities, and choose among the organizing four in the final semester. After completing the programme, students will receive a joint master degree in Media Arts Cultures from the universities they have attended. The programme is 120 ECTS and allows graduates to further pursue a PhD within Europe or other international higher education regions. More than 13 of the best EU and non-EU candidates will be offered Erasmus+ fully-funded scholarships for the duration of the programme. 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.
For applicants requesting an Erasmus+ scholarship via the MediaAC Consortium, the deadline for submitting applications is 1 January 2015.
For self-funded / external-funded applicants, the deadline for submitting applications is April 2015 for non-EU students, and June 2015 for EU students.
