The master’s programme Culture, Aesthetics and Media teaches academic and design skills explored in further depth in the following sub-areas: physical education and experience, fine arts, music, literature and aesthetic practice as well as performative arts. You also learn how to handle (new) media professionally as a cross-disciplinary skill.
Alongside this in-depth practical experience, you acquire the necessary expertise – in an interdisciplinary and application-orientated way – to develop cultural, media and social science theories.
The programme promotes especially communicative, transcultural, intergenerational and creative skills as well as the ability for interlinked and interdisciplinary thinking.
Under professional supervision, you work independently in projects and teams to approach culture, aesthetics and media – and their interdependencies – in theory and practice. We explicitly encourage you to choose your individual specialisation within the programme.
