In the field of media studies we are concerned with examining and assessing media in their technical, social, institutional, cultural and aesthetic dimensions in a well-founded way and classifying them in larger contexts. For this purpose, media scientists need knowledge of various media topics, theories, methods, analytical instruments and design criteria. The combination of theoretical models with historical perspectives and practical projects forms a multi-perspectival, scientific basis for reflection. The special feature of the course is its interdisciplinary approach, which combines cultural-scientific media studies with courses in media economics, economics and computer science.
The Bachelor’s program in Media Sciences is modularized.
