Media and Communication Design B.A.

Media and Communication Design B.A.

In the digital media world, design involves a broad and exciting array of tasks. The demands faced by designers are complex and at the same time fascinating, since the variety of media and the high volume of information require not only a steady stream of new ideas and creativity, but also clear conceptual thinking and process-led working methods.

Using cross-media media channels, multi-layered content must be transformed into visual images and stories, in a way that appeals to the emotions of users and recipients and conveys the message clearly. Curiosity, openness and fresh ideas are the hallmarks of a good media designer, as well as artistic creativity and visual imagination. And the willingness to think through all facets of the set task, and to develop conceptual solutions, before beginning the design. Lateral thinking is required, especially in cross-media projects.

The interdisciplinary programme of the Media and Communication Design course gives you the tools to master the whole spectrum of visual communication as an all-rounder with specific subject knowledge.
 
Our fields of study - animation, game design and media design - offer you the chance to focus during your studies on whatever interests you the most personally. During your studies, theoretical/methodological knowledge is combined with in-depth technical production know-how and practical applications, using real tasks in graphic design. In principle this means that the whole media economy is open to you at the end of your studies. The university is not just one of many possible places to learn. Practical exercises, an intensive exchange of ideas with real industry professionals, and authentic teaching projects are as important to us as the teaching of theoretical principles. This is what students really appreciate about MHMK.

The director of the programme is Prof. Tanja Schmitt-Fumian.

Order of studies


The Media and Communication Design programme comprises seven semesters in total, and gives wide-ranging subject knowledge applicable to various design tasks. The design industry is international. Our students prepare for this by acquiring their own overseas experience, spending their third or fourth semester at one of our world-wide partner universities. Here they are taught according to our curricula and examination requirements, so they do not waste any time, but gain valuable experience for their personal and professional training.
