MAP students in their first interim Progress Track Review

Students of the pilot generation of the MA Media Arts and Practices programme have had their first internationally flavoured Interim Progress Track Review on Wednesday, May 22, 2013. The programme is being developed within the ADRIART project and implemented currently at the University of Nova Gorica School of Arts, awaiting pilot implementation at the University of Rijeka Academy of Applied Arts in October 2013/14 and full implementation at University of Nova Gorica. 

Towards a MAP degree

At the beginning the student will either bring a project idea, or define concrete interest in one of the creative environments, either contemporary arts or intermediafilm or creative industries. This is where (s)he will alongside peers start the »Progress Track« under support of local and international mentors, and under review of expert committees. To build competences around the student's project idea or field of interest, s/he  can choose from several Carrier Modules (substantial theory-supported pratical projects) along the stages of Explore!Define!, and Focus!. Simultaneously, the student combines several competencies »… in Practice« by selecting diverse smaller courses from the realms of Techniques or Discourses on offer by the entire programme consortium. Courses are delivered on different locations in Croatia, Slovenia, Italy, or Austria and are all supported by an online learning environment. Possibly combining different creative enviroments in the beginning of the programme, the study experience gradually converges towards the final Master Thesis Project.
