Why did you decide on the Digital Media Bachelor programme?

I have always been interested in critical thinking and the connection between human and machine. Yet it wasn’t until I started studying the programme that I realised how much I am actually into Digital Media as a field of research. The reason why I initially choose the programme was the multitude of possibilities it provided. From the technological basics of computing all the way to the production of short films and live music. All of those aspects just really intrigued me.

Can you connect the content of your Minor Social Media with your Major Digital Media?

Yes, both of the subjects work rather well together. The Minor is a little bit more on the ractical side of Digital Media where as the Major is more based on reading theory. For example, in the Minor we would work with web crawlers and analyse large amounts of data and in the Major we would then read about the implications and theory behind the big data we’ve worked with earlier. So I’d say my Minor complements the Major quite well. The only downside to Social Media is that it is taught entirely in German. So if you are not able to speak fluent German it is rater hard to study this Minor.
