The prerequisite for admission to the master's programme is a Bachelor of Arts degree in Media Studies with an above-average overall grade, or an higher education first degree recognised as professionally relevant by the responsible Examination Board. Professionally relevant includes degree courses with cultural science or media science as the main subject, as well as other degree courses with relevance to media, as determined on a case-by-case basis. In other cases, the Examination Board may request remedial coursework to be undertaken by the applicant. No right to admission exists in this case.

A personal essay of approx. 3-4 pages describing the applicant’s motivation is to be included with the application for admission. This essay should include an overview of the scientific and professional/practical course of training up to now, such as media-related projects completed and/or internships, international experience during the first degree programme, and other student and/or scientific activities. Documentation of all activities must be included. Additionally, applicants should describe their personal perspectives for the future as relevant to the degree programme’s areas of focus.
