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.

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.
