About programme

The new doctoral program “Media Art and Creative Technologies“, implemented in cooperation between two universities:
•    Liepaja University, whose mission is to be an education, science, and innovation hub in Kurzeme, and

The specific objective of the program is to train competitive, research-oriented professionals who display a wide range of expertise in new technologies, audiovisual arts and digital cultural processes, who have acquired specific skills in creating works of art and innovative media products, and who are competitive in the labor market of arts, innovation technologies and creative industries, be it more traditional art and media production practices, cultural analytics, data visualization, or augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR), Extended Reality (xR), artificial intelligence, and Volumetrics.
The development of the programs is based on the “National Development Plan 2030” and the “Latvian Sustainable Development Strategy 2030”, in which the interdisciplinarity of studies and the concept of creativity education are especially emphasized.  In this strategy, education is treated both as the accumulation of specific competencies and qualifications as well as the development of critical thinking, creativity and cooperation skills, emotional and social intelligence.
