The Master in Multimedia provides specific training to develop both creative and technological skills in order to solve the challenges that the creative and cultural industries face in an increasing competitive and global market.
For this purpose this master program has the following goals:
This master programme is promoted by the five faculties and is organised according to the Bologna Process Agreements, taking into account both its global aims and pedagogical modifications.
It provides specific training for a broad set of backgrounds in four specializations:
This master programme also aims to develop skills in media, strengthening not only students’ acquired knowledge during their first-cycle of studies, but also the discussion of different knowledge between multidisciplinary teams, which are constituted in the course units and workshops.
Taking part of a master programme with this configuration is the most adequate choice regarding the development of dissertations, specialization and research of multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary projects, since the teaching staff is composed by professors of the five faculties.
IMPORTANT: To complete the Masters' degree it is necessary to prepare and defend a dissertation thesis in the respective specialization.
Who can apply
Holders of Degree or equivalent (national or foreign), or holders of academic, scientific or professional curriculum recognized by the scientific committee as attesting the capacity to attend this program.
The selection of the candidates is performed by a curricular analysis and an interview (if necessary).
The curricular analysis is subjected to the following criteria:
On this last topic the student should propose a Project to develop as her/his dissertation. It should be presented succinctly (max. 5 pages) including the motivation, a set of goals and a brief description of how the student intends to develop it and which are the major skills already acquired and to be developed during the master programme.

The Master in Multimedia has a logical follow-up in the Doctoral Programme in Digital Media.
"As a former student of the Multimedia Master's Degree I can confirm the excellent range of options in terms of compounding subjects, which facilitates the search for a specialization in a certain Multimedia area (Education, Technology, Culture and Arts, Interactive Music and Sound Design). On the other hand, in the more practical subjects, the setting up of multidisciplinary work groups becomes an added value, not only for the execution of projects that easily combine the different skills of each element of the group, but also for the student understanding of the importance of each Multimedia component. In personal terms, since I have chosen the specialization in Education, I highlight the well-succeeded integration of "compulsory" subjects and the contents of the specific subjects of this field. Content updating, which in my view is essential in superior education, is a guarantee in the Multimedia Master's Degree."
