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 basis for students to find their way in the traditional and digital visual world, including its traditional, motion picture, multimedia and interactive segments applicable in the areas of art and everyday practical use.

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.

SPECIALIZATIONS: Visual Representation Artist or Film and Media Specialist
The specialization will run depending on the minimum number of applicants being reached.

The academic programme is constituted by two, essentially separated specializations: Film and Media Studies which is centred around cinematographic and narrative representation, and Visual Representation which is concerned with the problems of the medium of picture and its ability to interpret and understand the world and human condition.

“We live in the line of the rapid fire of moving images. They are raining down on us from every possible place: movie and television screens, computer monitors, mobile displays, presentations and advertisements… They entertain, inform and control us. But who is going to invent, design, edit and record the images of the future in a creative, smart and artistic way? This might be just you. And this is what you learn to do at the Film and Media Studies program.”

“They say: “Success is a choice and it’s yours to make.” Are you one of these people to think like that? Then we have something in common. As a current student at Budapest Metropolitan University, I was clearly taught that the course you choose isn’t what you study, it’s what you live. Here I have the chance to build a balance between my academic and social life and I have met so many nice people in the international community.Whether if they’re locals or from the parts of the world that you didn’t even hear before, you’ll always be cheerful to meet these people. Apart from liking the fact that teachers would feel like your tutors during the classes and your friends afterwards the school, it makes sense of calling this atmosphere a family. Being a student here has given me the opportunity to equip myself with all the necessary skills and knowledge to further my career anywhere in the world. I thought I was only going to be a university student abroad as I enrolled to Metropolitan, but now I see I became an individual who delightedly calls this place, home.”
Vedat Direk, student of our Film and Media Studies BA program from Cyprus
