Shape your vision about culture
As a Media, Art, Design and Architecture graduate, you will have a broad foundation in various disciplines. At the same time, you will become a specialist in one of the four fields of media, art, design or architecture. While most students choose to continue their studies following the bachelor, you can also find work for diverse companies and organizations, or independently pursue project-based work.
Having completed your studies you will have learned to look critically at many visual and material expressions of culture, asking questions that are pertinent to understanding the context in which they appear. You will have gained experience in writing texts, analysing objects and images, and developing a birds-eye view.
With the knowledge that all cultures, and forms of culture, have deep roots and can profoundly influence each other and the world, your education requires you to rise above traditional disciplinary boundaries and you will take this approach with you on your future career path.
