Areas of specialisation
Our scientific research intertwines with artistic and productive activity and the design industry. In your studies you will observe a range of different media from the historical, cultural, expressive and productive points of view.
It is possible to choose an area of specialisation for the studies, such as moving image, animation, photography, sound and radio expression, as well as game design and its research. Students deepen their knowledge and skills in this area as they progress in their studies. It is also possible to combine areas of specialisation.

When studying Media Science, you will learn to recognise the key manifestations of media culture and their historical contexts. You will explore the central theories and manifestations of media science, media arts, history of moving image, dramaturgy and popular culture. Moreover, you will learn to apply the knowledge you have acquired to scientific, artistic and productive work.
In Multimedia studies you will focus on creating multimedia content for different platforms. You will acquire basic skills in multimedia design, content creation in web environments, multimedia expression and animation techniques.
Moving Image studies equip you for carrying out moving image works and productions and provide you with a solid foundation in filming, lighting, sound technology and post-production. They will also enhance your expressive skills within the field. You will gain knowledge of the work processes and practices of audiovisual projects, professional roles and production processes.
