Cinematography and Editing courses provide students with an opportunity to deepen their skills in cinematic storytelling, visual expression, camera techniques, lighting, editing and image post-processing. Students acquire the knowledge and skills needed in previsualization, working in the film crew and various stages of post-production.
Screenwriting courses develop and support the students’ dramaturgical and dramatic thinking and screenwriting skills. The main emphasis is on fiction screenwriting and short film and television series formats. During their studies, all screenwriting majors write a number of fiction, reality television and documentary scripts.
Production Management courses train the students in audiovisual project management. Students gain knowledge and experience in production planning and coordination, financial management, regulations and contract practices of the audiovisual industry, interaction and leadership skills, marketing and working in an international environment. Industry initiated projects provide students with an opportunity to deepen their skills in producing a film commissioned by a client.

Students gain an insight into cinematic expression from the perspective of sound design and production. They become well versed in the design, technical execution and management of the sound production process during the pre-production, production and post-production of a film.

The Media Department includes three degree programs - Film and Television, Live Performance Engineering & Media and Communication - where students follow individual learning paths. The core curriculum for media majors includes courses in academic and learning skills, languages, entrepreneurship and preparation for the final project. Then students follow the learning path of their major, but the structure of the curriculum and the timing of classes enable interdisciplinary courses and projects between them.
The starting point of the learning pathway is professional competencies. The main method is project-based learning, which enables close collaboration with industry partners. In addition to internships, the degrees include several industry-linked projects.
All learning paths include a 30 credit module of multidisciplinary courses that deepens and/or broadens students’ professional skills and at least a 10 credit module of elective courses. It includes a number of specialization courses.
The elective and alternative courses facilitate the credit transfer of courses completed, for example, in an international student exchange program. Students can do their internships in Finland or abroad, and the language courses are integrated with professional courses in order to support international and multicultural skills.
In their last year of study, students complete an independent industry-related project and write a research report on it. The final project may also include an artistic or practical project, performance or documentation. The project can be carried out by a group of two or more students.
