To inform, comment and analyze with images – the mission of the Television Journalism Subdepartment is to train young, politically alert and engaged journalists, with excellent professional, creative and personal skills.
Journalists bear great responsibility – they provide orientation in an increasingly complex world. They convey information and knowledge, providing the basis for a life in democracy and freedom. They can only fulfill this task if they have received sound journalistic training. This is what the Television Journalism Subdepartment stands for: Individual projects of our students have been nominated for the German Human Rights Film Award and the CNN Journalist Award, and have been viewed on German television, as well as at renowned festivals.
As part of their main studies, students in the Documentary Film department can major in journalistic television work, and specialize accordingly – from current news journalism to long reportages. The objective of the study program is: to learn journalistic skills, to recognize the laws of the market and, above all, to develop innovative forms.
