University agreement with Hollywood: California State University

On July 2, 2019, Hochschule der Medien (HdM) confirmed the cooperation agreement with the U.S. California State University, Los Angeles (Cal State LA) for a student exchange programme in bachelor's programme Audiovisual Media. The occasion was an exploratory visit by the Dean of Studies, Prof. Andreas Koch, during his research semester last year.

Now Prof. Dr. Alexander W. Roos, Rector of the HdM, and Prof. Tanya Kane-Parry, Director of the MFA in TV, Film and Theatre, sealed the exchange agreement. The university partnership is new: it was decided in February 2019. Kane-Parry used a trip to Germany to visit partner universities - including the HdM.

"California State University is an excellent university and we look forward to this partnership," Roos said at the signing ceremony. Kane-Parry is also looking forward to the partnership and the international exchange: "The cooperation offers the students of both universities great opportunities to further their professional and personal development." She was very impressed by the technical equipment HdM has to offer the students during their courses.

Exchange for Audiovisual Media students

"The USA are one of the most popular destinations for our students to study abroad. The fact that we now have a direct line to Hollywood for our filmmakers is of course the icing on the cake," says Martina Schumacher, Head of the International Office at the HdM. Cal State LA is the HdM's fourth US partner university, alongside Fitchburg State University, California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo and Syracuse University, New York State, with which the Hochschule der Medien has a direct agreement. The more than fifty-year-old state programs with California and Oregon continue to enjoy great popularity.

Starting in winter semester 2020/2021, five Audiovisual Media students will be able to attend the partner university for one semester or one year. The application deadline is 15th October 2019.
