Then the InterMedia bachelor's degree programme has six exciting semesters for you, in which you will work extensively on the media issue you choose at the beginning of your programme and thus develop your skills and competences. This work will sharpen your analytical thinking, help you to develop ideas that make sense and design media that allow for experiences from broader perspectives.
Based on a comprehensive interdisciplinary approach that combines theoretical and practical aspects, the programme will expose you to exemplary methods, means and ways that will help you to find solutions for problems in the field of visual communications.
To develop and realise communication tasks both independently and in teams, you acquire competences and qualifications in the following areas:
1. Research (understanding, observing)
2. Analysis (defining the question)
3. Experimenting (finding ideas)
4. Concept & design (developing prototypes)
5. Implementation & production
6. Evaluation & project review (testing and reviewing)
InterMedia is geared to the future and therefore puts a focus on digital media. Nevertheless, you receive sufficient opportunity to meet the needs of people and social communities and ensure that design serves the needs of people and not vice versa.
As a student, you will acquire the ability to focus your design work on current social, economic, technical and aesthetic issues from reference disciplines.
