Multimedia Design and Communication

More about the programme

The Multimedia Design and Communication programme is a two-year full-time higher study programme (120 ECTS) divided into four semesters including the opportunity of a study period in a company. 

The first three semesters are based on compulsory subjects. The compulsory part includes interdisciplinary work with subjects such as: 

  • communication theory
  • innovation
  • system and interaction design
  • quality assurance
  • graphic design and image appreciation
  • audio/video
  • 3D and animation
  • media integration
  • aesthetics
  • marketing and media selection
  • social developments
  • pedagogy
  • journalism
  • economics
  • IT systems

The compulsory part is divided into four main areas:

- Business Studies and Project Management 
- Communication and Dissemination 
- Visualisation and Concept Development 
- Interaction Development 

In the fourth semester you will have a three month internship in a Danish or foreign company (after your choosing). You will have to find the internship yourself, but we will off course assist you.

The studies are completed with a final exam project where you address a specific task related to the multimedia area. The project can be completed in connection with the internship and is often based on a specific problem in the company.

Career opportunities

Few people doubt the significance of communication today. But perhaps only a few are aware of what an extensive area communication represents.

Multimedia designers are trained primarily to be responsible for jobs needing digital communication. These could be in media or communications companies as well as advertising bureaus, Internet and multimedia companies, newspapers and radio/TV. Moreover the multimedia designer could create digital communications solutions for production companies and public services where marketing, information and development can be aided by multimedia.

As a Multimedia Designer, you will have the opportunity to work with communication in the broadest sense of the word. For that reason, the education contains several different aspects.

Naturally you will learn to master technology and its practical application, which is necessary for multimedia production. But you will also learn a great deal about how to convey messages in the best way; about concept development and marketing; about choosing the appropriate media; about design and aesthetics. Societal and company organizational aspects are also part of the program.

Your training will allow you to enter managerial areas where you will have the opportunity to work with many different types of people - on all levels of the company organization. This is one of the reasons why a great deal of the program is project-based.

You learn how to plan a strategy, work out a business plan, communicate your ideas to different target groups, organise and prepare a user interface for a particular customer group and program for the web and CD-rom. At the same time, you will be introduced to video production, audio and streaming.

When you have completed the program, you will have an understanding of both the parts and also the whole picture in the production of new multimedia production. You have, yourself, produced the parts in the group projects, and the whole can be seen in the results, which you and your group have achieved.
