Programme structure

The curriculum is 40% theoretically and 60% practically oriented. The students get an introduction in the different fields of communication and media studies and acquire the essential knowledge to start their professional carrier. The students have to collect 180 credits during their studies.

Requirements and the evaluation process may differ at the different courses, but generally in seminars the students are evaluated based on active participation and contribution, while on lectures they have to pass an oral or written exam and might face further requirements as well. In both cases, the evaluation goes from 1- failed to 5-excellent.
