What is the Expanded Media programme about?
Creating media experiences that intersect with and change the users’ everyday lives – this is what the English-language course Expanded Media (M.A.) is about.
The focus within these new, trans-media architectures lies in creating an experience that is both engaging and personal. In interdisciplinary media productions, students combine real-life and virtual worlds and develop a new media language focusing on user and audience experience.
Within the three focus areas – Expanded Storyworlds, Expanded Sound & Music and Expanded Realities – students are given the opportunity to develop their individual strategies in order to present a personal & impactful experience to the user.
Rooted in h_da’s tradition of technology leadership, students create extraordinary pieces of media that would be impossible to conceive elsewhere, going well beyond the limits of traditional film & design schools. With access to cuttting-edge technology in over 30 different labs, students from all over the world collaborate on interdisciplinary projects.
With its ambitious aim to push the boundaries of what is possible, the Expanded Media programme offers h_da media students the perfect challenge – an opportunity to harness all of their learnings and demonstrate their vision of the future media landscape.
„We need experts who understand immersive media and are able to make use of its full potential.“
With its interdisciplinary, user-oriented focus, the Expanded Media program occupies a special position in the university landscape – as a unique laboratory in which prototypes for the future of event culture can be dreamed and tried out.
