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.
