Advance in your career
University of the Information Society
A strong foundation in computer science and interdisciplinary combination of many disciplines of information technology provides an excellent basis for your education. The university wants to achieve even more: it wants to advance the scientific-technological development of the information society and wants to take advantage of the opportunities offered by the information and knowledge society.
The University has a focus on the study of sciences and cultural studies. The original institution was founded in 1614. There are five faculties and 67 degree programs. With over 7,500 students the Faculty of Cultural Sciences is the largest.
The population is around 150.000 and it is in North Rhine-Westphalia. It is one of the most important centers of the computer science industry in Germany. The German computer pioneer Heinz Nixdorf had a great impact on the city. He has a museum named after him, which is the 7. Biggest computer museum in the world. A historical town center, an old castle, a wide range of cultural activities, plenty of green areas and hiking trails make it a very attractive place to live.

The consecutive Master’s program in Media Studies aims to expand the basic knowledge and skills acquired in a research-oriented Bachelor’s program with a media science orientation to subject-specific theories, methods, analysis and design criteria of the subject and to deepen them in the direction of more complex subject-specific questions and greater research proximity. The further examination of theoretical models, historical and socio-scientific perspectives forms the prerequisite for a well-founded reflection and contextualization of past and present media phenomena. Students are given more freedom to design their studies largely on their own and to set their own priorities – in particular by integrating elective modules from the fields of media culture or media economics or economics – in order to open up the possibility of individual profiling.
The Master’s program in Media Sciences is modularized. Building on an introductory event, the compulsory modules Criteria of Media Development, Media Theory/History, Criteria of Media Design, Media Analysis/Aesthetics, Media and Society, Media and Individual, Media Competence provide an in-depth examination of theoretical, historical and aesthetic models of the subject.
In the elective compulsory area, a total of three modules from the areas of media culture and media economics will be chosen. In the course of your studies, you can focus on your individual interests. The scientific project module offers the possibility to realize a self-chosen and -conceived research-related project in the form of group work. The module is usually completed within two consecutive semesters. In a practical media module, students develop and implement their own practical projects. The profile study comprises two modules. In profile module 1, a six-week non-university compulsory internship is completed, which makes it possible to gather practical experience and gain insight into possible occupational fields. Profile module 2 is used for professional education; here students have access to all available and freely accessible courses at the University.
