The Master's Programme in Film and Media, with specialisation in Radio

The Master's Programme in Film and Media is a programme for going more indepth that is also research preparatory and has a common programme structure for all specialisations. In the programme’s theory courses, students are introduced to different perspectives on knowledge, theory, reflection and artistic research methods.

The programme also has methodology courses specific to the specialisation. As a master’s student in radio you immerse yourself in research and idea development, interview and editing as well as dramaturgy and music-making.

The insights and knowledge that you acquire in the specialisation-specific method courses are applied and later further explored in lab courses. Under supervision, you develop your creative processes and formulate and solve advanced artistic and design problems.

During the program you work with an artistic development work and you will discuss and analyze artistic courage and ethical approaches, investigate how to find and develop a story that works in serial format and how you can work with different documentary and artistic methods. You will independently reflect and formulate yourself about your work.

You take part in current artistic research and immerse yourself in processes and methods that are relevant in that field of research. During the programme you will have many opportunities for interactions across traditional professional boundaries, for example through elective courses that are common to the university’s departments. Here, each student identifies his or her need for further knowledge.

The programme leads to gaining specialist knowledge that prepares for research and for being able to work with radio in serie format.
