What it’s about

The possibilities to present information are just as varied as the range of information we receive every day: texts, images or videos. Using sound, websites or apps. In 2D or 3D, loud or quiet, analogue or digital. Explore new ways of telling and presenting stories with us and create games, virtual realities or films.

Course structure & majors

At the beginning of your studies you decide for one of two majors:

  • Film, or
  • Media Programming.

Your choice will determine the contents of your studies. But what is true for both majors, is: Have a go. Try things out. All the things you will learn in lectures, classes and seminars, you can apply in a number of awesome labs and studios. They include:

  • Green screen lab
  • Motion capturing lab
  • Stop motion lab
  • Audio studio
  • Usability lab and Human-Computer Interaction, and
  • Virtual reality lab

You will also learn how to turn your ideas into reality in 3D computer graphics labs and in our TV studio.

In the seventh semester of the programme you complete a three-month internship and write your bachelor’s thesis.

Majors

Film

How can you tell an entire story in just 30 seconds? How do you move people using pictures – no matter whether they are ads, documentaries or animated films? The secret lies in the perfect mixture of language – spoken and written, images – still and moving, music, 3D and design. You will learn all of this in this degree programme.

Media Programming

No two website are the same, the same goes for apps. And for computer games, too, of course. Good programming considers a number of different aspects: people, devices, code. 3D, fonts, colours, images. In this major we’ll show you how to do all this and how to not just develop good products, but test them, too.
