Media and Area Studies (MARS)
MARS is for everyone who does not fit into a traditional discipline-based approach but wants to study and work in an interdisciplinary way. The combination of media and area studies provides in-depth critical knowledge about processes of mediation and signification, and how space and geography intersect with them.
The theoretical-methodological background of the program consists of a combination of post-colonial theory, media sociology, memory studies and political geography. This theoretical approach is then translated into a very practice based, research oriented approach. You can get involved in research projects and study a particular social phenomenon.
The in-depth knowledge of the media and political ecology in Central Eastern Europe and the European Union will support your future employment in more senior/advisory positions in a variety of social fields and organizations, including state administrations, private sector (including media), public service institutions, and non-profit organizations.
The program is open to students who meet the general admission requirements and have an active interest in media, communication and politics.
