The degree program
The Master's degree program teaches culture-science
competence and media skills from different disciplines.
Students look at media practices in globally networked and
differentiated forms of society in research and practice in
order to make statements with an appropriate distance.
The degree program is research-oriented and pursues in particular the target of inspiring students to conduct independent research work in the media area on the basis of different scientific perspectives and methods. In the degree program, students will acquire the required qualifications in order to take responsibility for the media knowledge of our culture. The broad scientific training makes the graduates competent partners in all areas operating with media.
Development and structure of the degree program:
The Master's program comprises ten modules that deal with the intermedial and intercultural interaction of texts, images and sounds. In eight modules, historical, theoretical and analytical methods will be taught, supplemented by a research colloquium and a research project.
In the degree program in media culture, students can choose between the research-oriented subject combination program (advanced major) and the major-minor combination (major or minor subject). Depending on the chosen subject combination program, only a specific number of the total of ten modules needs to be attended.
Alignment with research in the Master's degree program in media culture not only explicitly prepares for a scientific career, but in particular qualifies for innovative tasks in media-related professions. This includes work in media-aligned scientific facilities, in which in particular high media-analytical competences are required, but also editorial concept and consulting activities in media companies with a research character.
In the major-minor combination Media Culture can be combined with the following minor subjects:
- Advanced Literary Studies: Literature, Culture and Media
- Language and Linguistics: German, English and Romance Languages
- Social Sciences
- Theatre Pedagogy
1) Completed Bachelor's degree program in a
media-sciences Bachelor's course (with at least grade 2.5 or
2) Completed Bachelor's degree program in other B.A. courses with a media-sciences share (with at least grade 2.5 or better). In the second case, students must demonstrate good knowledge of media theory, media history, and media aesthetics or analysis to the extent of 18 credit points (LP) in the research-oriented study model (Model A) and the major-minor study model (Model B). As a minor subject in the combined study model (Model B), an expected 9 LP must be demonstrated in the above-mentioned areas.
The current examination regulations at the time shall apply; exceptions shall be determined by the examination board.
An internship during the degree is recommended. A pre-internship is not necessary.
Examination regulations/degree plan/module
Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
