The 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) opens on 15th October 2014.

Associated partners: Ars Electronica, DAM, FACT, Laboratory of Research in Art and Techno Science, monochrom, transmediale, ZKM

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,

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

For applicants requesting an Erasmus+ scholarship via the MediaAC Consortium the deadline for submitting applications is January 1, 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.
