Top-level Study in the International Media Landscape

Our master programme in Applied Media (in founding phase, master programmes will start in 2018) explores media- technology systems and their role in driving cultural development. A strong focus is on how media innovations reshape company communication structures and educational learning environments.
Topics range from aesthetics, media psychology, gamification, Big Data and media ethics, to European film culture and the challenges of human-computer interface design.

Systematic Media Innovation

Harnessing research and trends in the media sector, we encourage students to anticipate future market developments and to create suitable media formats and content. The course emphasises systematic innovation - a method that stresses the causalities of an innovative culture. Graduates will be ready for jobs not only in media, but in companies and institutions of public interest, in international and cross-cultural settings.
