Digital Media


The six semester study program starts with the Leuphana Semester, which is completed jointly by all students. From the second semester onwards, students must specialize in one major and one minor field of study. The major Digital Media is the main subject of learning; it comprises five semesters and includes compulsory modules. The minor adds a second field of study.
