What are creative media at a university

Guided tour for study orientation

Degree programs in the field of media and design need creative and often also technical knowledge and have many overlaps with the disciplines of art and music, which also cover wide areas in themselves.

How creative the individual courses of study are in the field of media and design or how high a technical component may be, only becomes clear in the course plan or in the study and examination regulations. Sometimes you can also recognize the orientation by the degree title, i.e. Bachelor of Arts (more creative) or Bachelor of Engineering (more technically oriented).

Art and music can be studied as scientific subjects with a high proportion of theory, or very practical. So look closely!

The Combinations are diverse, also with completely different fields of study, e.g. music + computer science or music + business. The courses listed are only a selection.
