In today’s globalized world, where media representations shape social and political spheres, a critical understanding of media and (audio-) visual culture is crucial. Media studies, rooted in social anthropology, offers an in-depth approach to analyzing the complex connections between media, culture and society.
The three-year Master Program trains students in theory and practice in the areas of visual anthropology, the documentary arts (film/photography/installation), media culture and media anthropology. Conceptual and practical knowledge within these areas can be applied in academia, the arts, and culture and media industries, as well as to social, applied, or educational media projects. Students study the theoretical and practical foundations of visual anthropology, they gain experience in film production, project development, and (audio-) visual installation. Ultimately, they acquire the necessary skills for producing their own research projects and media outputs.
The program offers all classes as blocks of courses and participants need not be based permanently in Münster, or Germany for that matter. Distance learning allows students to participate regardless of their location. Please find the dates for the in-house classes here. The Master Program is designed with working professionals in mind enabling students to study and work at the same time.
The planned program is currently in the accreditation process which is expected to be completed in summer 2016.
