Concept & target group
This program is for students with a background in the social sciences and humanities, especially those in cultural, media and communication studies. Applications are welcome from both Germany and abroad.
Students can acquire new prospects for the future as part of the Master Program. The practical and analytical media skills and competences gained in the program can be used in many and varied ways in both academic and non-academic contexts. They distinguish themselves (and differentiate from those acquired in traditional media schools) through the methodical and perspectival questioning and understanding of comparative cultural and social anthropology.
Social-anthropological media skills and competences can be used in many ways other than in an academic context such as social projects (e.g. intercultural communication), NGOs and in international organisations. They can further be used in the culture media industry, artistic projects and artistic research. The practical work experience stage and the public exhibition at the end of the program provide students with the opportunity for networking and to present themselves and their work. The resulting network of students and lecturers and the international orientation of the program provide an opportunity to gain professional prospects outside of German speaking countries.
