Our teaching staff consists of the teachers of the former Visual Imagery Representation department and the Institute of Graphic Design, Media and Motion Picture Art. The range of education at our department has stretched to include the classical methods of expression such as autonomous graphic design and painting, as well as the digital variations of these art forms. Besides these, presenting the various border areas between applied and media arts brings new colours to our educational palette.

You can acquire comprehensive theoretical and practical knowledge on the areas of traditional imagery and portrayal as well as study the world of electronic imagery, motion picture and media. Our department offers a strong foundation for students to find their way in the traditional and digital visual world. Besides the classic genres of imaging, you can get to know the motion picture, multimedia and interactive segments of visual representation.

During the course, you will get a general picture of the theoretical and practical opportunities of  filmmaking, and an insight into certain sections of the profession.

By the end of the course, you will have a secure theoretical and practical knowledge about the features of visual communication and you will be able to create films. Due to the extensive practical training, you will surely find the area which is the closest to your personality and interests.

AFTER GRADUATING FROM THIS PROGRAM you will be ready to study and autonomously apply the potentials in visual language, both in the area of still imagery and motion picture.
