Master's Degree in Multimedia and Visual Arts Vera (València) Campus, Universitat Politècnica de València

Master's Degree in Multimedia and Visual Arts

75 credits ECTS

Introduction

The Master's Degree in Multimedia and Visual Arts responds to the impact of image technologies and the creative potential of programs for generating, processing, and manipulating the digital image. These changes are transforming the means of producing and disseminating artistic output, which is merging with other professional and economic information sectors, where the image, everything visual, is playing an increasingly important role.

The Master's Degree in Multimedia and Visual Arts has undergone an extensive restructuring. Aware of the social, cultural and technological changes since its inception, we continue to hold ourselves responsible for educating students in the use of the technical and conceptual tools of our time. Moreover, we have strengthened interdisciplinary aspects, incorporating teachers from the DSIC and DISCA departments of the Polytechnic University of Valencia, specialists in programming and physical and virtual computing systems, along with teachers specialized in the digital arts. Together, they develop the creative potential of students in generating, processing, and manipulating the digital image. There has also been an accompanying increase in theoretical instruction in visual culture and critical theory.

Objectives

Prepare researchers to plan and resolve multimedia and visual arts projects from an interdisciplinary approach, focusing on the creative, conceptual, technical and reflective aspects, combining the critical thinking of the humanities and techno-scientific applications of computer culture. The programme will enable students to:

  • Integrate responsibly into their social context as researchers who are aware of the impact of ICT on contemporary society.
  • Contextualize multimedia artistic production in the emerging field of research, Art-Science-Technology-Society (ASTS), considering how to extend it to other related areas of the public sphere and the mass media.
  • Apply research methodologies from multimedia and visual arts to generate new contributions to the research of this master's degree.
  • Assimilate the methodological resources that are necessary to generate a personal system of lifelong learning.
