The first three semesters consist of both a study module and a project module in the areas of Media Studies or Cultural Studies. The purpose of the project module is to enable students to study a chosen subject or research area in an intensive, reflective and exceedingly independent manner. Students are expected to come up with their own scientific results, write publishable articles on their findings or produce experimental presentation in another form, such as exhibitions, publication projects, installations and the like. In the fourth semester, students complete the master’s module.  

The standard period of study for the master’s degree programme 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.
