Masters in Communication. In societies of today, knowledge of different cultures and actionability within those cultures are more sought-after than ever. Likewise the demands on communication practices have increased dramatically. For that reason communication skills and cultural knowledge are key qualifications for the 21st century. Our master degree in the field of "Communication & Cultural Management" meets these challenges. Here, students can choose between two different tracks, meaning they can focus on either "Communication and Media" or "Culture Production". On the one hand, graduates of this course learn about and analyze the cultural foundations of present societies, while on the other hand they are enabled, through communicative practice, to play a part in resolving current social issues. Together, communication and culture are unlikely basic concepts of modern society. They emphasize what we take for granted and, in the process, call it into question. That changes the situation.
