The MediaAC Consortium invites dedicated and energetic applicants from
all countries and all relevant fields of study and experience to apply.

MediaAC is one of the few culture-centered Erasmus Mundus programs, and
the only program connecting culture to the media 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 the Creative and Cultural Sector.
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
Cultures. 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, Digital Heritage,
Archiving, Experience Design, Media Arts Theory, New Media Aesthetics,
Infrastructures of Digital Cultures, Long Time Preservation, Curating&
Arts Management, or Media Arts Futures provide students
bothinternationally-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.
