Introduction + info about courses in English

18foto-anhalt-deDear international students,

my name is Prof. Dr. Torsten Schäfer. I welcome you as the responsable international coordinator of the study programs Online Journalism (BA), Online Communication (BA) and Media Developemt (MA) at Hochschule Darmstadt (h_da), Darmstadt’s University of Aplied Science.

Here you can find a new collection of useful an (hopefully) entertaining texts, videos and maps about our study programs, Dieburg’s media campus and Darmstadt as a real student’s city. And here‘ s also some information about our courses in English. We will set up an individual schedule for each exchange students; enough courses in English are offered.

To explain it better, I show you here the schedule of an Erasmus student from 2016; it’s the typical mixture of media classes we select for most of our incoming students. The offer of journalism and communication courses in English changes every semester since we depend on the offer of different faculties and institutes.

We consider electives for all media study programs (here „Media Monday“) of the University’s media campus in Dieburg as well as offers from the department of Social and Cultural Sciences (in this case classes about migration and climate change) – plus language classes:


Feel free to surf, read and watch – and if there are any questions left, don’t hesitate to contact our International Office (E-Mail: dieburg.international@h-da.de  for general information) our myself (torsten.schaefer@h-da.de) for questions especially related to our offers in Online Journalism and Online Communication,
