Danube University Krems is the first public university
in Europe which specializes in advanced continuing education 
offering low-residency degree programs for working professionals 
and lifelong learners. The Center for Image Science, where 
many MediaArtHistories courses take place, is housed in a 
14th century Monastary, remodeled to fit the needs of modern
research in singular surroundings.

With its new modular courses starting in November 2006
the Center for Image Science (CIS) at Danube University offers
an educational program unique in Europe.

Without interrupting their career students have the opportunity to
learn 
through direct, hands-on experience, social learning in small groups 
and contacts with commerce and industry. They gain key 
qualifications for the contemporary art and media marketplace.

International experts analyze the image worlds of art, science, 
politics and economy and elucidate how they originated, became 
established and how they have stood the test of time. 
The innovative approach at CIS is reinforced by praxis-oriented study,

for example, of new types of image and video databases 
and the application of advanced processes for converting 
image collections into digital form. The post-graduate MA 
courses offer instruction in a finely tuned mix of practical skills, 
theoretical knowledge and close cooperation with top 
researchers and professionals from the international 
image science community.

=> First international Master in MEDIA.ART.HISTORIES (English
language)
The postgraduate program MediaArtHistories conveys the 
most important developments of contemporary art 
through a network of renowned international theorists, 
artists and curators like Steve Dietz, Erkki Huhtamo, 
Lev Manovich, Christiane Paul, Paul Sermon, Oliver Grau 
and many others. Using online databases and other 
modern aids, knowledge of computer animation, net art, 
interactive, telematic and genetic art as well as the most 
recent reflections on nano art, CAVE installations, augmented 
reality and wearables are introduced. Historical derivations 
that go far back into art and media history are tied in 
intriguing ways to digital art.  Important approaches 
and methods from Image Science, Media Archaeology 
and the History of Science & Technology will be discussed. 
Media Art History offers a basis for understanding evolutionary 
history of audiovisual media, from the Laterna Magica to 
the Panorama, Phantasmagoria, Film, and the Virtual Art 
of recent decades.

=> Course Image & Science (English language)
Have you ever asked yourself: "How do I get on the Cover of
Nature?"
The program Image & Science conveys in-depth knowledge 
of the history, aesthetics and practice of scientific visualization. 
Based on historically established image competency it 
demonstrates the latest possibilities of exemplifying scientific 
data and results in a visual form and helps professionals in the 
field to achieve quick results and improve their way of presenting 
their work. Various forms of visual information are being included 
- from statistical analysis and diagrams, plans and technical 
drawings to visualizations in natural sciences like in Medicine or 
Nanotechnology or displays of fluidity. The close cooperation of 
natural scientists, IT-professionals, historians, artists and 
designers contribute to the interlacing of the complementary 
perspectives of natural sciences and the cultural and historical
approach.
