Master in Digital Arts and Design

Program Description

The program "Digital Arts and Design" is one of the most innovative areas of studying in the master's degree. Every year digital technologies penetrate deeper into all spheres of human life. Arts is no exception. An important difference in this area of arts is that digital artists and designers are usually involved in activities related to high technologies and, as a result, are at the forefront of the development of science and technology.

The advantage of this educational program is a broader approach to the role and process of formation of not only interiors and exteriors environment, but also urban events, festivals, exhibitions, etc. The Graduate can be firmly confident that he can objectively assess the level of the subject-spatial and digital environment and give methodological recommendations that can significantly improve it, as well as directly implement the project.

Disciplines aimed at the study of information technologies, creative programming and modern digital equipment allow you to penetrate into the process of creating a digital artifact and to create works of digital art with a full understanding of the possibilities of the technology of their creation.

The educational process in the master's degree is built so that undergraduates will deepen their knowledge and skills in information and communication, organizational and management activities. This is facilitated by familiarity with the activities of design firms and studios where undergraduates are involved in innovative work.

Program Goal

During the training master's undergraduates will expand their knowledge in the field of artistic, creative and project work in the field of design and digital arts.
