MediaAC is one of the few culture-centered Erasmus Mundus programs, and
the only program connecting culture to the digital arts. Digital media
art plays a major role at international festivals and in contemporary
culture. But, in part due to the obsolescence of presentation equipment
and storage formats, media art has not yet fully arrived in archives and
museums. The collection, exhibition and conservation strategies of
digital art, as well as their mediation, are necessary for the
modernization of art institutions.
The joint Master of Arts MediaAC aims to generate a better
understanding of the image revolution. It addresses the needs of the
evolving fields related to the futures and histories of Media Art.
MediaAC provides education and training for future specialists in Media
Arts Cultures and prepare them for emerging careers in the creative and
cultural sectors, research and academia. 
Selected topics like Media Cultural Histories & Heritage, Archiving,
Experience Design, Media Arts Theory, New Media Aesthetics, Curating &
Arts Management, or Media Arts Futures provides students both
internationally-advanced theoretical as well as practical knowledge in
the Media Arts, through a singular combination of pedagogical foci,
trans-disciplinary approaches, and critical thinking in connection to
the needs of both academic and non-academic stakeholders.
Media Arts Cultures is a 2-year mobility program, enabling students to
study across Europe and in Asia. Students spend three semesters at
different universities and write a Master Thesis at the best-suited
partner during the final semester. Upon completion, students receive a
120 ECTS joint master degree in Media Arts Cultures from three
universities allowing graduates to further pursue a PhD within Europe or
other international higher education regions.
Each year, 19 of the best EU and non-EU candidates will be offered
Erasmus+ fully-funded scholarships for the duration of the program.

all countries and all relevant fields to apply.
