Filmic craft, artistic approaches and comprehensive technical and theoretical expertise: This is what the seven-semester Bachelor's programme Motion Pictures teaches in an attractive and future-oriented education. In the process, the students acquire the skills necessary in the film and television industry in creative workshops with a practical orientation. The excellent facilities at the Dieburg Media Campus with modern camera and sound technology as well as a fully-fledged TV studio enable students to gain a wide range of experience. You can find more in-depth information about the study programme on the website of the Faculty of Media.

Graduates with a Bachelor's degree have a whole range of job opportunities open to them. In the field of film and video, they work from the artistic-creative to the industrial sector, contributing to innovative cinematic projects, television series or new media concepts. Students work in planning and pre-production, script development, directing as well as camera work or in post-production. Alternatively, there is the possibility of directly completing a Master's programme, which qualifies students for management tasks in the creative industry, but also for activities in research and development.
