In this one-year masters programme you will learn how to look beyond the surface of digital media and distinguish crucial digital processes and how to transform these analytical insights into the building blocks that are needed to construct tomorrows media products. For your graduation project, you will conceive an original media innovation which you will actually bring into the market.

About

Focus

The guiding principle of this programme is that successful media innovations are often not brand new, but rather, they build on existing, recognisable elements. These elements, or codes, are the building blocks that can be found in any media product. In this master, we shed light on these building blocks from different theoretical perspectives. And, once you understand the codes behind a media product, you can make new connections. This is how you arrive at new concepts that are innovative and future-oriented.

The Media Innovation course is offered by NHTV Breda University of Applied Sciences.
