During the two foundation semesters (Grundstudium), professors introduce key media and culture theories. You will learn how to analyse texts, the fundamentals of media economics and view films that will then be discussed – so you’ll get to go to the cinema regularly, too! You will also look at the bigger picture and take modules from the Computer Science and Media as well as the Media Art and Design programmes. You will be familiarised with fundamental methods and content during the foundation semesters (Grundstudium) and receive preliminary orientation for your further studies.
You will then be free to select courses and projects from the fields of Media Studies, Cultural Studies and Media Economics. In line with the Bauhaus tradition, the faculty offers project-based study. This mixed format comprising lectures and seminars in small groups will allow you to consider specific content in greater depth. You are able to choose from the courses offered by our professors and to plan your own individual timetable.
The practical module in the fourth or fifth semester can be used for an internship or in-depth project in the artistic field. A semester abroad is also possible and encouraged. The faculty will gladly help you to organise this and offers a variety of attractive exchange opportunities.
The sixth semester is devoted entirely to completing your final project. We do not assign you a topic. Instead, you yourself must decide on both a question and your supervisor. For more information on the study formalities, please see the study and examination regulations.
