The re­con­ci­lia­ti­on of for­mer­ly se­pa­ra­ted di­sci­pli­nes can yield new per­spec­tives. Thus, in the Di­gi­tal Me­dia stu­dy pro­gram, com­pu­ter sci­ence meets de­sign, whi­le en­gi­nee­ring and na­tu­ral sci­en­ces in­ter­con­nect with the arts. De­sign, de­ve­lop­ment and ap­p­li­ca­ti­on of com­plex mul­ti­me­dia sys­tems ha­ve long sin­ce cea­sed to be fea­si­ble by sim­ply pla­c­ing de­sign ele­ments on top of func­tio­nal ones or vice ver­sa – clo­ser co­ope­ra­ti­on, a fu­si­on of di­sci­pli­nes is ne­cessa­ry. Di­gi­tal Me­dia in Bre­men ta­kes on that chal­len­ge.

Vir­tu­al Rea­li­ty, Cor­po­ra­te De­sign and Me­dia Theo­ry

The­re is a lar­ge spec­trum of to­pics. For ex­amp­le: – tech­ni­cal ba­sics of mul­ti- and hy­per­me­di­al sys­tems – new me­dia tech­no­lo­gies, such as vir­tu­al and aug­men­ted rea­li­ty – ba­sics in de­sign, pho­to­gra­phy and ty­po­gra­phy – in­ter­me­di­al de­sign, cor­po­ra­te de­sign and sound de­sign – theo­re­ti­cal-re­fle­xi­ve me­dia sci­en­ces such as me­dia theo­ry, me­dia his­to­ry and se­mio­tics. We of­fer pro­fi­ci­en­cy in com­pu­ter sci­ence, de­sign and ap­p­li­ca­ti­on, em­pha­si­ze sci­en­ti­fic ori­en­ta­ti­on and in­ter­di­sci­pli­na­ri­ty, and teach pro­fes­sio­nal skills on a broad sca­le. We open up op­por­tu­nities for our stu­dents in a wi­de ran­ge of pro­fes­si­ons — from sci­en­ti­fic re­se­arch and tele­com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on to ad­ver­ti­sing, mar­ke­ting and pu­blic re­la­ti­ons.

Equi­li­bri­um, au­then­ti­ci­ty, free­dom

The uni­que in­ter-uni­ver­si­ty co­ope­ra­ti­on of the Di­gi­tal Me­dia stu­dy pro­gram lets stu­dents select from a com­pre­hen­si­ve of­fer of cour­ses, put­ting them in a po­si­ti­on to au­then­ti­cal­ly ex­pe­ri­ence all as­pects of Di­gi­tal Me­dia. Stu­dents will pro­fit from the uni­ver­si­ty’s at­mo­s­phe­re of re­se­arch and the the Uni­ver­si­ty of the Arts’ crea­ti­ve en­vi­ron­ment. Fle­xi­ble stu­dy con­di­ti­ons and syn­chro­ni­zed cur­ri­cu­la al­low for the crea­ti­on of in­di­vi­du­al pro­files and fiel­ds of fo­cus.
