MOME offers new English-language MAs to East Central European talents

Date: 2022.12.01
Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design (MOME) further expands its international education portfolio following the successful launch of its first two English MA programmes. Students looking to continue their education in the creative industries will now have the opportunity to study Animation and Design in English language from September 2023, in addition to Photography and Interaction Design, building a valuable network and gaining future-shaping, competitive knowledge while still at university.

It is MOME’s ambition to become the most recognised university in the creative domain in Central Europe by 2030, and actively contribute the efforts of its creative communities to address the global challenges of the 21st century. This requires innovative, design-based responses developed by top professionals across scientific fields and borders. In September 2022, the university introduced its first English-language programmes to attract the best the region has to offer from the Baltics to the Western Balkans. The launch of the two new English-language programmes represents another important milestone in this process.

One Interaction Design MA student said the following to describe the training at MOME’s state-of-the-art campus: “What I like the most about it is that despite the set curriculum, there is a certain amount of flexibility in the programme. I enjoy the combination of applied and speculative design methods, the balanced content, and exploring a subject from several different aspects – human, technological, business – and through diverse fields of study. MOME offers scores of possibilities and formats for unlocking our potential, such as participation in hackathons and open calls, and drawing inspiration from talks by leading international industry players.”

The English-language MAs are naturally also available to students from Hungary and EEA countries, potentially with state-funding covering their entire tuition in case they submit their application through the Hungarian admission system. In addition, there is a dedicated scholarship programme for the top Central Eastern European applicants.

The long-standing Design MA programme launching in English in autumn 2023 seeks to train designers with a strategic approach and proactive entrepreneurial mindset who can understand the world in a broader context. It includes two specialisations: Strategic Product Innovation focuses on the research and design of human-scale objects, object systems and related services that reflect social and cultural needs in a complex fashion, while Smart Mobility explores solutions to responsibly address the transport challenges of the future.

The internationally renowned Animation MA, the university’s other new English-language Master’s programme, will offer a Film Director, a Game Design and an Immersive Storytelling specialisation. The latter will cover the working, tools and possibilities of virtual and augmented reality technologies in various areas including mental hygiene and the tourism of the future in addition to the entertainment industry.

Functioning also as a public park, the eco-conscious MOME Campus garden is now officially home to a small bee population. By taking in two bee colonies – nicknamed the Tót and the Mézga Families – the MOME community contributes significantly to preserving the natural environment of the area.

Though recurring every year, each MOME graduation period is unique, with a number of object and concept designs and artworks. Once again, there will be public diploma defences to take place between 3 and 20 June. The good news is that the MOME Diploma Exhibition showcasing the masterworks will be open longer this year, from 15 to 21 June at various locations across the Campus. Also, students from the first MA programmes to have launched in English language will be graduating this year.
