Curriculum + Modules
The core of the study program consists of four module sequences that run through the first five semesters. These module sequences cover the basic skills; visualising, writing and speaking, interactive media, and convergent producing. The content within these modules is mutually dependent and builds on each other. In addition, there are other modules such as media business administration, media law and ethics, audio and camera technology, corporate communications and a few more. This part of the program is the same for all students. From the fourth semester onwards, you have the opportunity to choose your specialisation.
The bachelor’s program is divided into an assessment level and a bachelor’s level. The assessment stage covers the basics, while in the bachelor’s stage you acquire the specific professional skills and deepen your knowledge in practical projects.
Full-time and part-time studies
The Bachelor’s programme Multimedia Production is offered as a full-time programme at the Chur and Bern campuses. Classroom teaching, project work and independent learning equate to a full weekly workload. Alternatively, you can study Multimedia Production in our online part-time class.

Study locations include Chur and Bern, as well as part-time online classes
You can study the MMP full-time in Chur and Bern. Furthermore, you can register for the part-time online class with up to 50% face-to-face tuition at our central locations. The course content is identical at all locations, merely the range of majors and minors differs. However, the timetables are designed in such a way that you can attend courses at either location. Travel costs need to be covered by the student. Many of the modules take place as one-day or multi-day events. In addition, one or more project weeks as well as cross-location courses or project days are held in Chur, Bern or elsewhere. A willingness to be mobile and show curiosity for new things is certainly an advantage.

This degree programme works closely with media companies within Switzerland and abroad, both technically and in terms of content. There are contractually stipulated collaborations with the Swiss Radio and Television Company SRG in Berne and with Somedia in Chur. In Berne, we operate a production environment on the premises of the Swiss Radio and Television. In Chur, we are located in the Somedia’s media building where, among other things, we operate a TV and radio studio. The production rooms are part of the Digiezz media lab.
