Welcome to the World of Media
How are books printed? How is information archived and documented? What does “communication” mean? How are virtual worlds created? What happens behind the scenes in TV studios? What is important in the design of packaging and how does advertising actually work? Students at Hochschule der Medien are concerned with these and many other questions.
Since the 1st September 2001, Hochschule der Medien has brought together the combined know-how of the former University of Printing and Media, an educational institution with over 100 years of tradition, and the University of Librarianship and Information whose history reaches back to 1942. With 16 Bachelor’s degree programmes and 6 Master’s degree programmes, a part-time MBA, and a doctoral programme, Hochschule der Medien covers a broad spectrum of media expertise: from printed media to electronic media, from mass media and media theory to media production, from media design to making media available.
At Hochschule der Medien, students learn in modern lecture theatres as well as in workshops and studios, at printing machines or behind the camera. Exciting practical projects in the University’s laboratories or in cooperation with partner companies complement theoretical knowledge and scientific working methods. Originally the university had two campusses. Since 2014 the university consists of one central campus in Stuttgart Vaihingen with a new faculty building, symbolizing "one media world".
