The Dortmund model – a fertile combination of theory and practice
Journalism studies coupled with a professional education
Studying journalism in Dortmund offers students a unique advantage: practical media training through a traineeship (Volontariat) is integrated directly into university study. Therefore, students do not only obtain a Bachelor or Master’s degree, but professional editor status.
The Dortmund model has been tested and proven over the past forty years to have a solid connection between understanding and knowledge of practical and theoretical elements, professional factors and scientific foundations.
