    In our modern society that is so heavily influenced by the media, skills for handling communication professionally are more important than ever. The Bachelor’s degree program in Journalism prepares students primarily for careers as journalists, but also for other areas related to communication, such as public relations. The program combines the theory of journalism and public communication with practice, as academic teaching is complemented by courses in the KU’s own mock editorial department. Here students learn about all types of media: print, radio, television, and online. The Diplom degree program from which the Bachelor’s degree program was developed was rated as the best journalism program in Germany in the 2005 CHE ranking.

    The program aims to ensure students have excellent career prospects by equipping them with:

    • fundamental knowledge of the development, workings, and conditions of the media, how media is used, and the effects it has
    • key methodological skills
    • basic knowledge of politics, society, and philosophy
    • specialist knowledge of either politics, business, or culture, depending on their chosen specialization
    • the ability to develop and research topics and implement them successfully in various current media

    In addition to the links between theory and practice, multimedia courses, excellent technical equipment, an international focus, and intensive individual support are key features of the degree program. Thanks to the focus on practice, graduates are able to adapt to working life quickly. During the program students receive intensive training in the methods used by journalists for different media and have the opportunity to produce their own newspapers, magazines, television and radio shows, and online magazine.

    The program prepares students primarily for careers as journalists in print, radio, television, or online media. As they gain knowledge of various different forms of media, they also develop the skills required to work on cross-media projects. In addition to the field of journalism, graduates may also work in public relations for companies, associations, NGOs, or political parties. They may also pursue careers in academic research or commercial market and audience research.
