New Master's programme: Non-Linear Narrative


20 juli 2017

The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague is offering a brand new, two-year Master of Arts in Fine Art and Design programme, starting September 2017: NON LINEAR NARRATIVE. This new programme merges investigative methods of journalism and forensics with processing technologies of computer science and visual arts into a contemporary, avant-garde discipline: the Non-Linear Narrative.

It analyses the relations of complex socio-political issues, and how they can be communicated to a broad audience. The programme repositions the graphic design discipline in the changing professional landscape and extends it with new responsibilities towards society.  

NON LINEAR NARRATIVE is led by designers Roosje Klap & Niels Schrader and includes an international team of designers, filmmakers, thinkers and guest critics to undertake research and development with a maximum of 15 master’s students per year in order to analyse, gather and present new forms of narrative.

There is a growing need for socially involved, broadly oriented designers. The NON LINEAR NARRATIVE master's programme will teach students new ways of telling stories and, therefore, asking the news to take position vis-à-vis the graphic design discipline. The course is conducted completely in English.
