This new masters of arts program funded by the 
European Union is 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 and 
educational future of Europe.


The objective of this joint 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, Falk HEINRICH, Harald 
Jeffrey SHAW, Lev MANOVICH, Maciej OZÓG, Margit 
ROSEN, Morten SONDERGAARD, Oliver GRAU, Ryszard 
many othersŠ


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 in at least three 
universities, and choose among the EU partners 
for 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.




For applicants requesting an Erasmus+ scholarship 
via the MediaAC Consortium the deadline for 
submitting applications is January 1, 2016.

For self-funded / external-funded applicants the 
deadline for submitting applications is April 15, 
2016 and June 1, 2016.
