Overview

Overview

The bachelor's degree in media informatics is offered jointly by the TU Berlin and the FU Berlin. The course combines mathematics, basics of computer science and media technology with social science approaches to media communication. A special feature of Berlin's media informatics is the strong integration of social science and analytical components into the course. This means that the acquisition of technology-related as well as communication and society-related knowledge and skills alternate over the entire duration of the course, whereby all courses are closely linked to one another. This enables students not only to develop and implement digital media applications technically and in terms of content, but also to analyze their effects and draw conclusions for new types of media communication.

Program Structure

The bachelor's degree is divided into a basic degree and a specialist degree. First of all, students receive the necessary basic knowledge in the areas of computer science, mathematics, media technology and communication science. Interdisciplinary projects and seminars are intended to consolidate the knowledge acquired and contribute to developing analytical and problem-solving skills and promoting important soft skills.

In the specialist course, students deepen their skills in the areas of media effects, design, technology and applications; in an additional elective area they can choose an internship that corresponds to their interests and acquire further general and professional knowledge. At the end of the course there is the bachelor thesis. The Bachelor of Science is an internationally recognized, professional qualification.

The course regulations regulate the structure and process of the course. It contains detailed descriptions of the content and qualification goals of each individual module and an exemplary course plan. The examination regulations define the type and requirements of the module examinations. In the regulations, the credit points (CP) for each module or event as well as the workload in hours for the entire course are specified.
