Specialisation

Immersive Storytelling

This specialisation provides students with theoretical and practical knowledge on designing immersive narrative spaces and working in virtual and extended reality environments. It also focuses on virtual production technology, a central focus of filmmaking in recent years. The goal of the Immersive Storytelling programme is to train professionals who are able to adapt storytelling practices to a creative technological environment.

Video Game

The video game market has been growing exponentially in recent years, with the use of video games today extends far beyond the entertainment industry, sparking a growing demand for qualified game design professionals.  Students completing the specialisation will be familiar with the theoretical basics and methodology of game design, as well as the traditions, practices and possibilities of interacteive storytelling, and can use its set of tools in an innovative and experimental manner. They will be able to work in teams to design and develop engaging video games with a unique visual and narrative style.
