Selected projects from ZU students of Communication & Cultural Management
This is a Master's degree for philosophers, dancers, artists, sociologists and musicians, but also for students of art history, media studies, and cultural studies, as well as those who seek a sound theoretical understanding of art, communications, aesthetics, the media and society. Studying for the Master's degree in 'Communication and Cultural Management' (CCM) means reading thinkers such as Habermas, Luhmann, Illouz, Rancière and McLuhan. It means undertaking substantial research, including empirical studies, as well as organizing cultural events with fellow students. Studying CCM means preparing oneself, both in terms of theory and practice, for today's challenges as a decision-maker within the field of cultural management or communications. Students learn how to look at societal issues from a multidisciplinary perspective and how to make use of their creativity in real-life projects. And all this on the shores of the beautiful Lake Constance.
The Master's in CCM is a 2-year full-time study program focused on research and offering a wide range of modules from cultural and communication studies. In addition, students will also be required to take courses in economics, management, public administration and psychology. In offering both a communications and a cultural management track, the program seeks to prepare students for managerial work in the rapidly changing environments of the media and the art world.
The study program allows for both a theoretical and project-based learning culture. Students are thus encouraged to further both their academic skills as well as their conceptual and creative capacities. A rigorous analysis of the theories within communications and cultural studies will contribute to a deep understanding of the practices, institutions and distribution channels that will shape the future of advanced societies.
Although a good number of courses are offered in English at ZU, students will not be in a position to complete a degree program in English. Knowledge of English is preferred; knowledge of German is an absolute necessity. ZU requires that all degree-seeking applicants demonstrate a minimum of intermediate-level German skills.
