Subject to approval from the University administration, plans are in place to offer the Bachelor’s degree course in Film and Television Production as described below from the winter semester 2011 onwards. Please ensure that you check our website for any possible changes before submitting your application.
The course in Film and Television Production provides an education that is both creative and practical and scientific and theoretical. It is oriented to the current state of affairs in the world of film and television production in order to meet the requirements of professional practice. The aim of the course is to provide students with a high level of qualification for the most significant careers in the production and management domains of the audiovisual media world. The course will provide graduates with a degree that qualifies them to work as production managers, line producers and producers, whilst also opening up the possibility of employment in other vocational areas involved in media management. The balance between and functional combination of creative and practical teaching and the scientific and theoretical transfer of information aims to prepare students for such careers. They will not only learn about technological and economical issues and those related to production organisation, media law and media politics, but also about topics related to art history and aesthetics and humanities. The course simultaneously forms part of an interdisciplinary system of practical production activities that will help to qualify students for their future careers and runs throughout the duration of the course. Part of the educational principle of the University is the content-based interaction of all courses and the combination of students in group assignments. By combining specialist theory and practical learning in team projects that prepare students for their future careers and involve a division of labour, this method connects creative innovation with the manual and technical knowledge and skills taught in the course and enables students to work together and put their top quality foundations of technical knowledge into practice.
The standard duration of this course is 6 semesters.
The degree Bachelor of Arts (BA) will be awarded upon successful completion of this course.
Following this Bachelor’s course, the HFF will offer a consecutive Master’s course with a duration of four semesters.
