A programme developed based on new trends in the world of communications. It is no longer enough to publish content on social media, now, the world demands stories that are told on various communication platforms, known as transmedia content.

In this course, students will receive masterclasses on the development of transmedia content, which they will have to apply to two real projects in which they will work throughout the experience, both projects being able to be incorporated into the student’s portfolio.

In addition, taking advantage of the unique enclave in which they find themselves a series of complementary training activities has been designed, whose main objective is to bring students closer to the environmental problems that the Mediterranean Sea is facing and including training in matters related to sailing and the sea.
