The Media Studio is an environment to experiment and learn how to develop and produce content across platforms.
Here you will create videos, podcasts, illustrations, graphic designs, and websites.
As early as the first semester, you can start developing and producing content in different formats for various platforms. By the end of the fourth year, students interested in content production will have built a portfolio of different materials that can be used as part of their resumes. Those students who are interested in the more executive aspect of communications will use the Media Studio as a hub to implement and manage the tools they will later need to convey different messages professionally.
No matter what your profile is, the Media Studio will give you a head start in the competitive job market.
You will work on projects and assignments along with fellow classmates, using the different facilities as spaces to brainstorm, develop, create, collaborate and exchange projects and ideas.
The Media Studio offers the following facilities:
- The Oven is a space designed for students to brainstorm ideas and develop them. This is where you will be free to meet, explore visual references, watch movies and series together and come up with strategies to implement your own projects.
- The Production Studio is a facility to execute your audio-visual projects or as a resource for technical support in the production stage.
The Media Studio offers the following facilities:

“I’ve always been fascinated about brands, what they stand for and how they build their meaning in a global context. It’s interesting how nowadays communities interact and establish a dialogue with brands and how the organizations behind them manage to deliver consistent messages via multiple platforms and formats. I see myself in a consulting firm that helps organizations to become visible and relevant for their audiences.” - Carmo Braga da Silva
“I love people and their stories, I have always considered myself as a story-teller and I believe using illustrations visually is the best form of storytelling. I’m very curious about how these illustrators create universal languages to connect with people around the world. I have many ideas in mind and I want to learn how to make them real, concrete and visible for others. When I graduate, I would like to work in an audiovisual agency for a few years and eventually start my own studio.” - Pablo Fernandez
