[…Non Linear Narrative is a two-year master’s programme that merges investigative methods of journalism and forensics with processing technologies of computer science and visual art. There is a growing need for socially involved, broadly oriented designers. The Non Linear Narrative master's programme will teach students new ways of telling stories and, therefore, asking the news to take position vis-à-vis the graphic design discipline.]
