Digitalization is changing the world around us. Datafication – the growing number of data that can be aggregated and processed in automated ways – increasingly becomes characteristic for our societies. As part of these processes, the role of media and communication devices and what we mean by media and communication studies is changing as well. The M.A. Digital Media and Society is situated at the leading edge of these developments. Its aim is to qualify students for media planning and decision-making positions in a datafied society.
Digitalization and datafication require that we critically rethink the role that media and communication devices play in our everyday lives. The in-depth analysis of these developments in different segments of society is a central theme running through the modules of the M.A: Digital Media and Society. In addition to the enhancement of critical and analytical thinking, a second core theme is to provide students with the required skills and knowledge to work in businesses, organizations and institutions dealing with aspects of digitalization and datafication.
The master’s program adopts an integrative approach, as we understand digitalization and datafication in their broadest sense and in their interrelations to society as a whole.

The master degree course Digital Media and Society is designed as a full major program over 2 years or 4 semesters, whereby students are encouraged to integrate a study semester or an internship (abroad) into their studies.

Degree courses with mandatory semester abroad

First of all: As a student of the University of Bremen, you have the possibility in all degree courses to complete a stay abroad during your studies. All degree courses have defined mobility windows. It is best to find out right at the beginning of your studies when the right time is for your study or internship stay abroad. Information on studying and internships abroad

However, there are also degree courses in which an obligatory semester abroad is required in the course of study. We have listed these degree courses below:

The subject of legal studies is the content, formation, design, and application of norms that are binding in social and economic relations. Classical legal studies have traditionally been limited to the analysis of the law in force in a state as applied by national courts. This narrow view does not meet the requirements of the globalizing knowledge and society. Particularly in transnational economic relations the focus is less on litigation than on the avoidance of costly disputes through smart contractual structuring of economic relations. This requires the ability to work from the perspective of different national laws as well as a thorough knowledge of European Union law and its effect on national law. Lawyers should also be familiar with international contracts and the practice of arbitration, which is increasingly seen as an alternative to positive national law in transnational economic relations.

For this reason, the Carl von Ossietzky University of Oldenburg and the University of Bremen have been jointly offering the undergraduate Bachelor programme Comparative and European Law since 2002 in which German and European law are taught from a comparative perspective but the classical canon of German law consisting of civil, criminal and public law is covered, too.

A one-year stay abroad in the 5th and 6th semester forms part of the study program to facilitate the crediting of the work performed abroad. The successful completion of the integrated study abroad program is guaranteed by extensive foreign language training prior to the study abroad program. During the course of study many lectures are held in English.

Digital Media is an interdisciplinary course of studies concerned with both the theory as well as the application of planning, conception, design, technical implementation and evaluation of interactive multimedial application systems. Studies integrate aspects of media theory, media engineering, media science and media design. Besides the general foundation courses, students can choose between two main thematic areas: The program Media Design offered by the University of the Arts Bremen focuses on artistic and design aspects of the field. Graduates are awarded the title Bachelor of Arts (B.A.). Studies in Multimedia Engineering (Medieninformatik) offered bei the University of Bremen are focused on the technical engineering aspects. Graduates are awarded the title Bachelor of Science (B.Sc.).

Digital media have no borders. That's why it makes sense for students to leave their own university for a while in order to expand the horizons of their knowledge and learning abroad. The goal of the semester abroad is the authentic experience of international learning and research contexts in the field of work and application of digital media. Students majoring in "Medieninformatik" are required to complete one semester abroad. The stay abroad should last one semester and is normally scheduled in the fifth semester. The prerequisite is a C1 certificate in English, which can be obtained at many institutes in Bremen and Germany. The study achievements during the stay abroad are agreed upon in a "Learning Agreement" between students, the University of Bremen and the host university and are fully credited to the study achievements.

This bachelor's degree course is concerned with English-speaking cultures and literatures, and with English language, language varieties, and language history, referring primarily to those of Great Britain, Ireland, the (former) Commonwealth countries (Canada, in Africa, New Zealand, and Australia), and the United States of America. The program includes the following components: Literary Studies, Linguistics, Cultural Studies, and Language Practice. In the teaching-oriented orientation of the subject, subject didactics is also added as part of the professionalization area. The courses are taught in English.

Central to the third year of studies is an academic exchange overseas of at least three months. That opportunity permits undergraduate students to experience and adapt to an international environment including the benefits of learning of other educational systems. Second year students who use their visit abroad for collecting research data should begin to draft their final dissertation in their chosen field of studies immediately upon their return.
