Mastering the art of possible in emerging media
Please note that this programme has no intake in 2020. We welcome new applicants again in 2021 and hope to see you there!
This mid-career Master’s degree requires 2 years (24 months) of work experience after Bachelor’s.
Emerging Media includes new formats, technologies and digital cultures such as virtual and augmented reality as well as constantly changing forms of mobile communications and social media. During the studies, various fields of emerging media are discussed and analysed. Based on your previous work experience and personal interests, you will select at least one focus area in which you develop your skills. The application fields can be, for instance, music or media production, arts, communications, marketing, digital learning, virtual collaboration and developing work practices.
The programme merges emerging media and sustainability, meaning the promotion of wellbeing and tackling of local and global challenges and, on an economic level, e.g. the consideration of business opportunities of emerging media. The studies combine research and practical work in a multidisciplinary way, which encourages to look for ideas from different approaches and practices of media and arts as well as other disciplines.
The studies are organised mainly online, with three separate intensive workshop weeks. Therefore, it is possible to study and have a work at the same time. For your Master’s degree, you will be engaged in active, self-directed learning required for taking over new technologies and application fields. Personal coaching supports this. The duration of the studies is 1-1,5 years depending on the thesis project.
The programme aims to open up new career and business opportunities to media professionals, artists, musicians and designers. It also helps to expand your professional and business networks in Finland and internationally. The three intensive weeks are organised in Mediapolis that is a hub of audiovisual industries in Tampere.
The largest study module is the Master’s thesis, comprising half of the study credits (30 cr). The Master’s thesis focuses on the execution and report of an innovative/artistic emerging media project. During the advanced professional studies (5 x 5 cr), students update their knowledge and acquire new know-how and skills in the field of emerging media. They explore and experiment how art and content creation are related to emerging media forms and technologies. They also study sustainable value creation from economic, environmental and social perspectives. Free-choice studies (5 cr) extend students’ knowledge and skills in a field that is relevant for their Master’s project.
The occupational profiles of graduates are diverse depending on their prior professional experience and personal achievements during the studies. Graduates are qualified for leadership roles and demanding tasks in the area of art, media and innovation in creative industries and other industry sectors.
