Following the impressive success of computer-based interactive media in nearly all fields of business and private life, Digital Media is also emerging as a scientific discipline - a field of research that goes further than just combining the knowledge of designers and computer scientists: It also takes their different communities seriously, taking their respective approaches and attitudes into account. The comprehensive international Master of Digital Media program of study in Bremen seeks for excellence in design, informatics and media theory alike. This is an international program - the language of instruction is English.
The Master in Digital Media is a two-year program leading to a Master of Science (M.Sc.) or a Master of Arts (M.A.) degree. The Master of Arts is issued at the University of the Arts Bremen. The other Universities (University of Bremen, University of Applied Sciences Bremen and University of Applied Sciences Bremerhaven) issue the Master of Sciences degree.
In order to be accepted for the program, applicants will need a surpassing Bachelor degree in a relevant field (e.g. Digital Media, Computer Science, Media Design) and proof of good English language Skills (TOEFL, IELTS or similar). Furthermore, applicants have to hand in several accompanying documents, such as letters of recommendation, a letter of motivation and a portfolio of relevant prior academic and non-academic work.
The Master program is four semesters long and structured in a very flexible way. The first semester offers introductory and regular courses. A major part of the second and third semester is reserved for the Master`s Project, which constitutes a significant part of the program. It is accompanied with regular courses. The last semester is primarily intended for the Master Thesis.
