The Master’s in Humanities and Creative Industries (HIC) trains students in the creation, production and marketing of creative content for new digital uses. It prepares them to work in the innovative field of creative industries, including working in teams and in project mode. They acquire rich knowledge and a mastery of digital tools.
Two tracks are offered:
  • The MAJIC track: Video games, Image, Creativity
  • The MAPIC track: Project Management for the Creative Industries


From the diversity of its courses spread over 5 major fields (Human Sciences, Culture, Creations, Technology, Business Management), the first year of the HIC master’s program allows students to move towards one of the two tracks:

The MAJIC track teaches students the objectives, risks and perspectives at each stage of video game design, from production to marketing. To enable students to master a project as it unfolds, the course links digital technologies, graphic and screenwriting, societal expression as well as economics and marketing in the fields of video games and serious games.

The MAPIC track aims to train business engineers and technology project managers in the creative digital industries. It teaches students to use modern management methods related to Information and Communication Technologies to study a creative project in its entirety, to propose a coherent plan and to lead the multicultural direction.
