Cooperation with the Faculty of Informatics
The Master’s degree is design as an integrative course program in cooperation with the university Faculty of Informatics. That way students are offered the opportunity to gain an academic M.A. degree, after successfully completing the application-oriented Bachelor’s program, that is practically-oriented through a complementary and interdisciplinary scientific education, that involves the participation of university facilities.
Therefore, students of all Master’s degree programs complete multiple optional compulsory modules from media and management-relevant fields in the Informatics Department. Overall 15 ECTS points will be granted.
The cooperation with the Faculty of Informatics is especially prolific due to its contextual intersection of media-relevant aspects. The computer supported group work builds upon basic theories of communication and cooperation and adds broad contribution to the technically supported expansion of synchronous and asynchronous multimedia communication. The human-computer-interaction extents the reflection of communication to socio-technical systems and is thereby the foundation for designing interactive products. Both directly concern media design in the field of mobile communication. The thematic fields of IT management and IT security are central tasks not only for online media companies such as social networks. Lastly, innovation management of digital media and business model development are core prerequisites for a long-term success on the media market.
