Audiovisual Communication Technology

The Audiovisual Communication Technology degree aims to give professionals higher qualifications in audiovisual communication by promoting the development of skills and the effective use of relevant theoretical-practical and technical-artistic concepts.

This cycle of studies intends that students use the languages and technologies of audiovisual media, photography and cinema. The theoretical and practical proficiency in the use of audiovisual tools, viewed from a creative and aesthetic point of view, promotes conceptual and methodological creation in two domains:

— Technical field: practice in the use of audiovisual equipment, which are seen as creative and aesthetic tools in information and audiovisual communication;

— Artistic domain: developing concepts and languages in the art of image, namely in the areas of video, photography, sound and lighting. The study program includes a group of subjects in the areas of photography, film, video, television, visual studies, design and information technology.
