The Master in New Media Art promotes creative innovation across various artistic practices.

The program is structured around the conception, production, and presentation of cutting-edge projects that convey new forms of expression. The students will develop their projects according to their personal perspectives: whether experimental, artistic, or market-oriented.

This challenge will be met and overcome with a thorough discussion between professor and student, as well as tutorial guidance by visiting artists. The research will be led through the development of projects, further expanded by theoretical and artistic reflection.

In recent years, students and teachers of the School of Arts have won or been nominated to important awards in this area like, for instance, the Sonae Media Art Award 2019.
