The Master's degree program in Eichstätt offers the perfect symbiosis between science and practice: Current issues are analyzed directly in a practical context using scientific methods. 

Through these exciting projects that are carried out in collaboration with well-known media partners, the Master's program ideally prepares students for both science and practice.”

"I came to Eichstätt to be able to completely focus on journalism. Here you are trained in a cross-medial manner and have enough freedom to choose your own priorities and implement your own projects - especially during the many practical phases. Because journalism is mainly: Practice. Getting out, talking to people, making new worlds approachable. It is particularly important to have solid tools for research. The Eichstätt journalism program ideally imparts these skills."

Graduate survey

Every two years, the Journalism department in Eichstätt systematically surveys all graduates of the Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programs. This allows us to know where our graduates end up, how the professional environment changes and how graduates evaluate the degree programs in retrospect. We regularly adjust our study programs accordingly.

 

You can find detailed information on the results of the graduate surveys in the following PDF files.

Outstanding accreditation
