It is a relevant, contemporary supplement to all core subjects offered at Humboldt-Universität. The subject enables students to acquire media-studies-related basic skills and apply them to the knowledge they acquire in the core subject.
The scientific skills gained from the course include the systematic, historical, analytical and technical/practical capabilities indispensable for concept-oriented and knowledge-oriented careers in the culture and media sectors.
Successful graduation from the Media Studies course is preparation for professions in cultural and media institutions, for careers in science and research or further courses, in particular the Media Studies master’s course at Humboldt-Universität.
