Study New Media Design in Berlin

Stage the world differently!

Our society is becoming more mobile: terms like “space” and “distance” are undergoing a fundamental transformation thanks to digital media. Today, there’s a whole sector of industry devoted to communicating and producing information, brands, and experiences in media spaces.
The University of Europe for Applied Sciences (UE) provides you with the skills to transform communication within virtual and physical spaces into inspiring and lasting experiences. In the New Media Design (before Media Spaces) master’s programme, you’ll learn how to analyse and locate spatial, moving, and non-linear forms of expression and how to apply them to your own spatial concepts. You’ll be in the perfect position to develop complex and advanced design and technological solutions for challenges of a multi-disciplinary nature thanks to the sound media competence you’ll have as a graduate.

New Media Design

The New Media Design master’s programme is a project-based degree programme and perfect for students who have completed undergraduate studies at university level in an artistic, design, or media-related subject area. At the UE, you’ll have the unique opportunity to contribute your own personal design skills and background and make something meaningful out of them – whether in communication design, media design, architecture, stage design, design management, or media theory.

The first two semesters consist of interdisciplinary project-based studies, the theory of various media and process-based events, as well as a catalog of compulsory courses. You will work in a team throughout an entire semester on a joint challenge and go through the typical phases of a project, just as you would in your future career: from research, planning, and concept creation to realisation, documentation, and presentation.

The entire 3rd semester is dedicated to your master’s thesis. This module includes the completion of your thesis, which consists of a design-in-practice part and an academic part.
