Due to the specific profile of the participating institutions and the unique concept of the European Film and Media Studies programme, students are trained to become independent concept designers equipped with innovation-making skills. Consequently, the curriculum aims to deepen and expand the students’ scientific abilities in such areas as concept-building, methodology and research. Students gain expertise in German and French national cinematography, European film and media history, and specifically in German media theory, as well as documentary film and photography to a lesser degree.
The master’s degree programme European Film and Media Studies focuses on the following areas:
- Media and Cultural Theory/History
- Media Philosophy
- Cultural Technologies
- Film Studies, Film History, History of Film Discourse
- Aesthetic Analysis of Media Products with a concentration on Film and Documentary Film
- European Studies
Students begin the programme in Lyon, spend their second semester in Weimar and their third in Utrecht. All students return to their own universities for their fourth semester to write the master’s thesis.
The standard period of study for the master’s degree programme European Film and Media Studies is four semesters. After successfully completing and presenting their master’s thesis, students are awarded a “Master of Arts” (MA) degree from the Faculty of Media of the Bauhaus-Universität Weimar and a “Humanités et Sciences Humaines” master’s degree from the Université Lumière Lyon 2.
