Bachelor of Arts in Media Design

General

Program Description

Media designers are the polyhistors of the 21st century. In the age of constant technological revolution, their role is not only to follow but to shape that with artistic sensibility: to make the new digital world modest for us, from the World Wide Web, through the post-production of films to game development.

With the help of the most modern technical equipment, our goal is to prepare our students for all the fields of media design, from the development of visual effects to create 3D space - how it is possible to design and implement works of art, products, installations, services, and interactive applications which seek to satisfy those changing social and individual needs emerging in our environment.

Creativity

The first year is about forming the fine arts mentality, visual logic, and compositional skills, but above all, about the disclosure of personal creative skills

Technology

The second year focuses on enhancing students' technical knowledge, including hardware and software knowledge, primarily 2D and 3D design, and also interactive applications.

Career

During the third year students design and imple­ment complex tasks and creative projects. In the course of these projects, students can prepare for their graduate careers in real-life situations, in coo­peration with the agents of the creative industry.

The program is designed for you:

if you have a keen interest in visual effects, light painting, developing applications for virtual realities, computer music composing, animation, game design, data visualization, digital post-production work and you are creative with a mature visual, technical sense, and possess some critical insight. In addition, you are familiar with information technology or prepared to acquire the necessary IT knowledge and skills.
