B.A. Media and Communication Studies

In the bachelor’s program in Media and Communication Studies you will acquire broad theoretical and methodological knowledge which will allow you to analyze communication processes and media in a scientifically sound manner. The program focuses on the peculiarities of products related to mass media and their impact in relation to social systems and social change.

The program is completed by an Interdisciplinary Cultural Studies module, which casts light on the concept of culture by considering the topic from different angles that are characteristic for the individual departments. You are also obliged to take a minor (accounting for around 30 of the 180 ECTS credits).

Within the context of the practical module and thanks to the department’s cooperation with local and supraregional institutions of the public broadcasting service (SWR, Deutschlandradio), publishers (dtv) or cultural institutions (Heidelberg Theater) students can apply their theoretical knowledge in practice already at an early stage and gain access to interesting areas of activity. During the mandatory six-week internship you will get the opportunity to put the competences obtained into practice.
