New Master in Film and Media with several specialisations: /english/find-courses?filter-subject=film+and+media&filter-level=master+program&last-clicked=filter-level&page=2

 

The Master’s Programme in Film and Media prepares students for future research and consists of two years of full-time studies at second-cycle level, in which you choose to study one of the three course profiles. You will find out about current film and media research and deepen your knowledge of processes and methods that are relevant to your artistic practice. You will work theoretically and practically and conduct production exercises. The programme is headed by the university’s professors and assistant professors. We also cooperate with other higher education institutions, both nationally and internationally.

The Master’s Programme in Film and Media started with three profiles autumn semester 2018.

Narrative Space – Production Design for Film and Media

The course profile Narrative Space – Production Design for Film and Media is aimed at applicants with a visual imagination and a strong interest in the art of designing environments for moving image storytelling using space, place, architecture and objects as narrative tools.  

The Art of Impact

The course profile The Art of Impact is an international and interdisciplinary course aimed at applicants who want to develop their professional role, critically reflect on their artistic approach and that of others, and, through seminars and labs with the aid of new technology, develop and broaden our subject areas. We strongly focus on the narrative and on audience, distribution and participation.

Documentary Processes

The course profile Documentary Processes is aimed at documentary makers, artists and journalists who want to deepen and develop their knowledge of contemporary reality storytelling in theory and practice.

The Master’s Programme in Film and Media

The Master’s Programme in Film and Media consists of lectures, seminars, production work, travel and study visits. Alongside an ongoing practical project, you will discuss artistic courage and an ethical approach, relate your own practice to that of others, study various artistic methods and formulate your own.

The teaching language is English. Some language adjustments may be made for the student group so that, for example, Swedish can be used in certain situations during the programme. In the written parts of the programme, students can usually choose to write in English or Swedish.

Part of the programme consists of compulsory modules, which are common to all students regardless of course profile.

The course Reflections on practical knowledge gives students the tools to critically review and describe the artistic work that they create and that of others through more in-depth study of the philosophical and theoretical foundations of the artistic field of knowledge.

Another part of the programme consists of Elective courses. The students here identify their need for further knowledge and take responsibility for their knowledge development.

The Independent degree project comprises the equivalent of one semester’s total work. The point of departure for the project is a research question, such as a study of an artistic method or the examination of an artistic process. The work is individual and is presented in the form of examples of practical work and written text.

Within the Production course, the students formulate and solve advanced artistic and interpretative (figuration) problems and demonstrate the ability to conduct experiments in storytelling and/or interpretation (figuration). They also plan and, using adequate methods, carry out qualified artistic tasks within given schedules.
