The application period for the new master course starting in autumn 2022 is open!
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 English-language 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 Master Program is designed with working professionals in mind and is an option for people who want to study while continuing in employment or other commitments. This program is for students with a background in the social sciences and humanities, especially those in cultural, media and communication studies.
