The Master of Arts in Creative Design for Digital Cultures (MA CDDC) is a master's programme that trains students as specialists in the creative industry.
The MA CDDC has three pathways:
• Games and Interaction Design
• Film, Animation and Media Design
• Music and Sound Design
Each pathway represents a specialism: from games, cross-media productions and computer animation to music design, production and technology.
It focuses on searching for and designing creative applications for the various media and the solutions they can provide. The different programmes follow the same curriculum, whereby all the disciplines work together. It is possible to specialise through the choice of seminars, projects and the role you take on in the project team. You will graduate in a project you formulate yourself, which is combined with a supportive narrative.
