In the Digital Media major, you will learn how to analyze ideas, technologies, and histories of digital media and how to develop your own practical projects.
The Digital Media major is structured in four strands. The first strand consists of a thorough engagement with the history and analysis of digital media in general.
In the second strand, you analyze particular elements of media cultures, such as digital video, digital audio, or Internet culture.
In the third strand, you learn hands-on skills and develop your own practical projects. All this is completed by the fourth strand, which looks at digital media from a technical angle.
The Bachelor’s degree program at Leuphana College consists of four basic elements: the Digital Media major (90 ECTS credits), the minor (30 ECTS credits), the Leuphana Semester (30 ECTS credits), and the Complementary Studies (30 ECTS credits).
The Bachelor’s degree program in Digital Media begins with the Leuphana Semester, during which you learn the methodological and disciplinary foundations of your academic specialization in digital media.
From the second semester, your Bachelor’s program is divided into the Digital Media major, a minor of your choice (e.g., Popular Music Studies, Philosophy, Psychology, and Society or Sustainability Science), and Complementary Studies.
In Complementary Studies, you can try out new ways of working and thinking from other disciplines, allowing you to expand your interdisciplinary skills.
