The master's program is conducted in English, consists of a mixture of e-learning and classroom sessions, and also includes media practical exercises and seminars in the field of film, audio and print media.

The M.A. program Visual and Media Anthropology is primarily aimed at bachelor's graduates with initial work experience who would like to work in the TV, print and online media sector after completing their studies. The program also opens up many other diverse career perspectives in the cultural, media and educational sectors.
