Congratulations! You have made it! You have successfully completed your studies at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. You have worked hard and have shown both perseverance and commitment. You have acquired comprehensive specialist knowledge, having studied alone and in teams. You have planned, pursued and implemented your own projects in keeping with the Bauhaus tradition. You have passed your final exams and are now a graduate of the Faculty of Media at the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar. On behalf of the entire Faculty, I congratulate you on this achievement.
This degree is something very special; you have graduated from a unique university, one which is not only characterized by the joy of experimentation and its practical application, offering scope both for basic research and for the study of art and architecture, but one which can also can look back on a history which has its roots in the State Bauhaus in Weimar and has continued to this day to be a decisive stimulus for the contemporary design all over the world.
However, the circumstances in which you have completed your studies have also been special. The Corona crisis has brought about massive restrictions in public and private life, and this has inevitably included in the operation of our university. You have not allowed yourself to be distracted by this and have managed to stay focused on your degree. For this you deserve additional recognition and additional respect!
Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it was not possible to hold the graduation ceremony in its usual form in 2020. This a matter of great regret to us as we would have liked to have taken the opportunity to say goodbye to you formally and in person. If circumstances permit, we would be happy to meet up with you next year at summaery2021 and in some way compensate for the cancellation of the celebrations in July.
Until then, we wish you all the best and much success.
With best regards,
Prof. Dr. Henning Schmidgen
Dean of the Faculty of Media
