Institute for Music Journalism | Radio | TV | Internet
In its bachelor's and master's degree programs, The Institute for Music Journalism (IMJ) trains students to become journalists mediating among radio, television, and the Internet. The six semester bachelor’s degree course mainly teaches basics of music, journalism, and production technology. The four semester master’s degree program addresses possibilities of new information transfer through the media, using projects and professional cooperation.
The IMJ is the only institution in Germany to feature webstreaming and a local FM transmission frequency (104.8 MHz). Lectures, seminars, workshops, and projects may be broadcast live and pre-produced 45 hours weekly from the radio station. In addition, in a virtual 3D video production studio, students produce television and video broadcasts and presentations in cooperation with regional TV programs. In addition to basic training, students gain a high degree of practical competence in production engineering. Graduates are sought-after moderators, contributors, editors, and producers in international broadcasters, online editors, and staff at media centers and independent production companies for video and television.
