Internship

2019/2020

Content, progress and pedagogy of the module

MediaAC students have a compulsory internship in their curriculum. During internships, students work in institutions related to Media, Arts, and Culture. Internship placements are provided by MediaAC Associated Partner organisations and other pre-arranged organisations. In addition, there is also the possibility for students to propose their own ideas for their internship placement. The internships give students practical insights into contemporary themes they’ve encountered during their studies. Furthermore, students will get insights into practice in the field and make valuable contacts for increasing their future employment perspectives.

The Associated Partners in MediaAC programme are renowned national or international institutions that are active in the creative and cultural sector and whose activities are closely linked to the topics of Media Arts Cultures. The Associated Partners provide internship placements for MediaAC students and support the academic quality of MediaAC with their expertise. Members of Associated Partners can also participate in the programme as teachers.

Involvement of the Associated Partners and other organisations receiving interns will help MediaAC students develop a broad picture of the evolving future of Media Arts Cultures at national and international levels. These organisations include, but are not limited to, institutions within the creative and cultural sector, museal or governmental organisations, non-governmental/ non-profit organisations, private business organisations, networks and associations.

Learning Outcomes The internship gives students new experiences to serve as emerging professionals in the field, to get recognized as such and use the experiences and contacts made here for their future career. They have the chance to transfer their theoretical knowledge and outcomes from the first year of studies into practice and find out about their personal interest for career development. In terms of academic reflection, the internship will serve as a good basis for the second year and can be used as a basis for the master thesis.
