The University 0f Münster is now accepting applications for fall 2017.

The program
The Master program Visual Anthropology, Media and Documentary Practices trains students in theory and practice in the areas of visual anthropology, the documentary arts (film/photography/installation), media culture and media anthropology. Conceptual and practical knowledge within these areas can be applied in academia, the arts, and culture and media industries, as well as to social, applied, or educational media projects. Students study the theoretical and practical foundations of visual anthropology, they gain experience in film production, project development, and (audio-) visual installation. Ultimately, they acquire the necessary skills for producing their own research projects and media outputs.

The program

This program is for students with a background in the social sciences and humanities, especially those in cultural, media and communication studies. Applications are welcome from both Germany and abroad.

Structure
The program consists of six semesters (three years), including the master’s thesis and final media project. Students have the possibility to complete the program after five semesters (two and a half years). The program was designed to study and work at the same time. Distance learning allows students to participate regardless of their location. The in-house classes will be offered as block courses and require presence in Münster (about 10–15 days per semester). The language of instruction is English.

Structure

An important platform for the Master program is Adobe Connect. This is a multimedia web communication system, which enables students to attend online and in real-time. Students can upload their own productions and receive support. Lecturers and students can also communicate over this platform.

Students who successfully complete the program are awarded a Master of Arts from the University of Münster (Westfälische Wilhelms-Universität Münster).
