Applications for the 14th intake of the IMS Master’s Degree are now being accepted until March 31.
“It’s a great opportunity to explore a range of theories and perspectives from around the world and benefit from staff expertise across a multidisciplinary department aimed at producing the best media professionals,” said 26-year-old student Erica Ehiamah from Ghana. The Master’s Program “International Media Studies” (IMS) is especially designed for graduates from developing and transition countries with previous media experience.
As a joint project of the University of Bonn, the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences and DW Akademie, DW’s center for international media development, journalism training and knowledge transfer, the program offers a perfect learning environment for up to 30 students per year. “We exchange opinions and get into discussions with people from all over the world who have different experiences and mindsets. This can help us create our own ideas about topics that we would otherwise not necessarily think about,” said Andrea Ariet. She was born in Barcelona, Spain and lived in Poland and Belgium before coming to Bonn for the IMS program.
