Core competences for the working world of today and tomorrow - the Bachelor's Minor in Audiovisual Media

The Bachelor’s Minor in Audiovisual Media combines the expertise of the major subject with the media-specific knowledge of audio-visual design. Whether they are publicists or political scientists, history or film scholars, students learn in six semesters how to use contemporary audiovisual media to present complex topics in an attractive way for a broad audience. Fundamental journalistic knowledge lies also at the core here. Due to high demand, the degree programme is currently accepting 32 first-year students each year instead of the previous 16.

Application information

Are you interested in studying the B.A. Minor in Audiovisual Media? We are happy about that!

First of all, it is important for you to know that Audiovisual Media is admission-restricted within the university. Therefore, deadlines and procedures apply for admission-restricted two-subject bachelor programmes. An overview of NC values from previous years can be found here. Audio-visual Media can only be selected as a Minor in the two-subject bachelor’s programme, but it may be combined with all core subjects of the bachelor within this framework. First-year students are only admitted for the winter semester.
