The Master Multimedia Communication & Publishing strengthens your professional and leadership skills in political communication or journalism.

Q: Do I need to know German to start the degree program?
A: German at a high level is a requirement for this degree because language is the "raw material" we work with and because writing publishable texts requires this competency.

Q: What percentage can I work while studying?
A: The face-to-face classes of the compulsory modules take place on Thursday, Friday, sometimes on Saturday. For independent study, students organize themselves. Individually and in groups. Full-time students have face-to-face classes every week during the semester; part-time students also have weeks without classes, depending on how they arrange their studies. Part-time, as well as full-time students, usually work while studying. We recommend that you do not commit to more than 60% so that you can devote sufficient energy to your studies.

Q: When do I have to take which module?
A: Our experience shows that the modules Editing I and II should be taken in the first and second semester. These modules are necessarily consecutive in time as well, because an editorial team works together for a year and then also publishes. The individual planning of when you take the other modules is up to you. However, you must keep in mind that the content is consecutive and that each module is only ever offered either in the fall semester or in the spring semester.

Q: Can I do a semester abroad?
A: In principle, yes. Recommended is then the third semester. Let us advise you. We are in the process of arranging partnerships with various universities specific to the program.

Q: Can I also take courses from other programs at BUA?
A: There are a number of courses (called GK courses) that can be taken by all students in the Design and Art faculty. They usually take place on Wednesdays. The ECTS are credited to the free ECTS of the program.

Q: Do I need to know my master's thesis topic when I start the program?
A: No, you do not have to. You will have the opportunity to approach your topic coached by experts in the modules Research Methods I and II.
