Program Profile

The focus of the program is on interactive (game/web/app design) and linear media (film/video/animation).

The goal of the program is to provide students with the necessary professional, methodological and social skills and to train them to become independent thinkers, team players and graduates with scientific, technical and design skills. In addition, we consider the sensitization of our students to social changes to be an important prerequisite for gaining a foothold in the creative industry.
