Commencement of studies
Winter and summer semester
An academic degree program and practical training go hand in hand in the Media: Conception & Production course. Prof. Wolfgang Schiffler, an initiator of the course: "The degree program is the perfect symbiosis of practically-oriented studying and design and technology-related knowledge." Besides the university's professors, experienced adjunct instructors from journalism, film production, event management or media law hold lectures and supervise practical work.
The standard period of study is six semesters.
Applicants who have successfully completed a media apprenticeship may apply to have it recognized in lieu of the first two semesters.
In the first semester students learn the practical basics over three modules.
The second semester is divided into seminars and an internship.
The third semester teaches broad-based theoretic and specialized knowledge in design,
During the fourth semester theory is linked to practice in the area of event management and media production.
The focus of the practical module is on the design and creation of new media formats and media productions. The presentations take place at the end of each semester at the well attended Media Showroom Night. Numerous examples of work can be seen here: www.media-showroom.de
In the fifth semester students can study at one of the course's many partner universities. Alternatively students can opt for an internship abroad. During this time, students write two academic papers in the area of design and technology.
The sixth semester consists, in equal parts, of a practical final piece of work and an academic paper (Bachelor's thesis). Students' final pieces of work is often carried out with partners from industry. Support is provided for experimental work that examines or researches innovative media productions.
The Bachelor's degree in Media: Conception & Production consists of a total of 15 consecutive modules. Details can be found in the Examination Regulations.
A detailed overview of the individual modules can be found in the module handbook. Subject to change.
Content producers bear a high responsibility in the boundless world of opinions and media. Content, technologies and markets are increasingly impacting each other across the world. This makes looking beyond one's horizons all the more important – not only from an academic, but also from a personal perspective. What's more, having intercultural skills is a clear plus for the labor market and improves the chance to begin an international career.
This is why a semester abroad is an obligatory component of the Media: Conception & Production degree program.
