Content, Objective and Course Structure
Management in Digital Media: to understand cyber-culture and to design the face of the digital future
The BA course Management in Digital Media at hdpk in Berlin will enable you to work within one of the fastest-growing media sectors.
The modular structure of the study course Management in Digital Media includes seven semesters, during which you will be expected to achieve a total of 210 credit points, and to attain the academic degree of Bachelor of Arts Media Management (B.A. Media Management). During the first two semesters, your accredited courses will focus on the basics of project organisation, cross-media and media informatics. Subsequent courses will deepen your understanding of interface design and content management systems. These theoretical courses will be complemented by practice-orientated projects, and will prepare you for a career in your chosen field.
The course schedule gives an overview of individual units of instruction, which module they are part of and when they are timetabled. During their 5th term, students complete an internship or a semester abroad. A primary aspect of studying at the hdpk is to participate in the network of the six major bachelor programs Music Production, Popular Music Audio Design, Media Management, Media Design and Creative Industries Management: cross-disciplinary courses are intended to bring together students from different programmes, providing them with a head start into their careers, for which they will need to cooperate with clients and partners. These cross-disciplinary projects also serve to establish contacts among future professionals, and later on often serve as a first interdisciplinary professional – and personal – network.
