Combination Bachelor's Program

Media and Communication Studies at Freie Universität Berlin is offered as a combination bachelor’s program, which consists of one major (typically 90 credits) and one or two minor subjects (one 60-credit minor or two 30-credit minors). Media and Communication Studies can be chosen either as major (90 credits) or as minor (60 credits) through other study programs. Students can choose their majors and minors from a broad range of subjects unless a specific combination is required. Subject combinations can be tested in the Interactive Combination Table which is part of the Online Study-Choice Assistant. Candidates get admitted to their majors and minors separately, but have to enroll for all of the program’s components at the same time.

In addition to major and minor subjects, 30 credits need to be accomplished in the area of General professional skills courses (Allgemeine Berufsvorbereitung, ABV).
