    The artistic, narrative and experimental process that is developed in the master programme is research matter in itself. In parallel, in some of the courses, it is required that the student elaborates in writing his/her artistic conception process in direct relation with the state of the art and with the literature on animation studies, so that it can be published and disseminated and contribute to research in the area.
