Course organisation

The two-year, international, anglophone Master's programme expands and deepens the knowledge that students acquired in their Bachelor's degrees. This is an international programme - the language of instruction is English. The Master's in Digital Media is a two-year programme leading to a Master of Science (MSc) or a Master of Arts (MA) degree. The Master of Arts is issued by the University of the Arts Bremen. The University of Bremen issues the Master of Sciences degree.
With media informatics, media design, media theory and special topics of digital media, the first year builds the foundation for the full-time Master's project in the third semester. In this project, the students work on a complex problem pertaining to science, arts, and design. The Master's thesis is written in the fourth semester.
