Bachelor of Arts

Design the media of the future

Media Design at Furtwangen University is the first degree programme of its kind to focus primarily on the design of digital media - and rightly so. Because the increasing merging of reality and the virtual world means that media are developing into ever more complex systems, becoming more interactive, collaborative and creative. Communication via media is also becoming more complex, and the design correspondingly more sophisticated.  Applications that were dismissed as science fiction just a few years ago have long since arrived in our everyday lives. This is where you come in.

With a degree in Media Design, you'll be able to stay on top of things and help shape future media use. In this degree programme you will not only be dealing with integrated communication, cross-media, user experience, interactive storytelling and scenography, but also with the Internet of Things, virtual reality and game design among many others. With such a broad spectrum, you should definitely have stamina, diligence and motivation - creativity and curiosity are essential.
