The Master Program requires a first university degree that qualifies for professional work and has been acquired in one of the following disciplines: humanities, educational sciences, social sciences, natural sciences, mathematics, computer science, engineering, artistic design, economic sciences, legal sciences, medical science or in a closely related course of study.
The work samples can take the form of any or multiple media, including but not limited to essays, scientific writing in all disciplines, documentation of artistic and design works, audio, film, or interactive websites. The portfolio / selected works should demonstrate your specific and individual approach, interests and skills in relation to the interdisciplinary, research-based masters. The format which you choose to display your work samples is open, you can submit either a PDF or a website. There will also be portfolio meet-ups before the application deadline where you can discuss this in more detail with us. They will be announced over Instagram and on our website.

Applicants with a German school degree do not need to submit a separate proof of language proficiency.
After the application, all applications will be processed and a selection will be made according to the degree of qualification for the programme.
