The Dortmund model – a consistent combination of theory and practice

Seven professors, a multimedia newsroom, an Institute for International Journalism and an affiliated television station: The technical equipment as well as the close supervision by lecturers mean that the conditions for studying journalism in Dortmund are unique in Germany. The cross-media training in our labs covers print, TV, radio, online and social media journalism.

The range of courses on offer cover an impressively broad spectrum. Investigative journalism, conflict sensitive journalism as well as trauma and  war reporting and applied media research are just some examples. We provide training both in journalistic skills as well as communication science and thus consistently combine theory and practice.
