Berlin University of the Arts is one of the largest and most diversified universities of the arts in the world. The teaching offered mostly in traditional formats in the four colleges of Fine Arts, Architecture, Media and Design, Music and Performing Arts as well as at the Central Institute for Continued Education/ Berlin Career College encompasses the full spectrum of the arts and related academic studies in more than 70 courses. With the right to confer doctorates and post-doctoral qualifications, Berlin University of the Arts is also one of the few art colleges in Germany with full university status. Teachers in art and music are also educated at Berlin University of the Arts, the only university in Berlin and Brandenburg where these subjects can be studied.
The study programme Art and Media is the only course at the UdK Berlin offering networked artistic teaching in the time-based media. Teachers of various subjects collaborate to offer this special study programme, the focus being on interplay between artistic experiment and technical media. By contrast to specialist subject courses, the basic character of the study programme Art and Media is interdisciplinary. The order of studies, for example, prescribes at least one change of subject during the programme. The diversity offered is essential to the identity of the study programme.
Teaching takes place as project work in different subject classes. Artistic training in these classes is characterized by an open atmosphere, and the aim is to encourage the development of new perspectives in regard to artistic authorship and practice.
After their graduation students may have access to a number of professional fields ranging from fine art to diverse media professions. At least four semesters foundation course in a comparable field is required for admission to the programme.
