We are pleased to announce the upcoming call for applications for 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).

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 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, and Wendy COONES, et.al..

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 least 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.

More than 13 of the best EU and non-EU candidates will be offered
Erasmus+ fully-funded scholarships 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.
