MAP - APU Rijeka starting, application deadline 21st September, 2013

 

The Academy of Applied Arts at the University of Rijeka has launched a new, two-year study programme (120 ECTS). The programme is called MEDIA ARTS AND PRACTICES (MAP) and it begins in the academic year 2013/2014.
The study was developed through the Adriart project.

MAP curriculum consists of three main modules, the so-called Carrier Modules: Photography, Intermedia and Scenographic Spaces. These three modules are the main production areas that students select upon enrolment.

Upon the invitation by the the Austrian Agency for International Cooperation in Education and Research ADRIART will be presented and discussed in a special Arts&Music section to a selected audience of managers and practitioners at the Neighbours.HigherEducation.Cooperation. conference on Higher Education Cooperation in Central, Eastern & South-Eastern Europe in Vienna. The conference is bringing together over 300 representatives from universities in 20 countries to share cooperation expertise and to provide a platform for future common initiatives and collaboration.

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.
