Testimonials

Ilias Katsigiannis

I’m Ilias and I was a student in the second edition of the Master of Arts in Accessibility to Media, Arts and Culture.

I think that AMAC is a great programme. It has significantly broadened my understanding of the pivotal role that accessibility and inclusion play within the field of culture. The Master’s programme, characterized by its interdisciplinary nature, enables students to explore various areas of media accessibility, such as subtitling for the deaf and hard-of-hearing, audio description, respeaking, and easy-to-read language. Concurrently, it provides a strong theoretical foundation rooted in Disability Studies, which is crucial for professionals working in this field. Also, the programme emphasizes practical learning, seamlessly integrating theory with hands-on practice during the lessons.

All the professors are distinguished scholars in their respective areas of expertise and are committed to helping the students and answering any questions they might have. Moreover, one of the key advantages of AMAC is the work placement. This feature allows students to gain valuable industry experience prior to graduation, and in my case, I believe it has contributed to my successful integration into the job market.

So, for those interested in delving into the world of Media Accessibility, I would definitely recommend AMAC!
