The 2-year Master’s Program  in Global Visual Communication at Jacobs
University is designed for an international student body and faculty
strongly committed to transdisciplinary studies. 
Our research cooperations involve universities from Brazil, China,
Europe, Japan, India, and the United States. Excellent multimedia
facilities are available in the Behavioral and Social Sciences
and students will be involved in research projects at the Jacobs
University Research Initiative for Visual Communication and Expertise

The program is  designed to provide students with the competencies
necessary to understand the complex structures of contemporary media and
communication systems along with the fundamental 
changes they are currently undergoing. Courses consequently focus on
the following aspects:
· Transnational and global communication;
· New media and the decline of traditional media institutions;
· The role of visuals in today’s mass and network communication;
· Visual communication and identity formation;
· Internet-based media and democracy;
· Global network studies.

By the end of the Master’s Program in Global Visual Communication,
students will be able to systematically and independently analyze the
major trends in communication, understand and 
explain global visual communication phenomena and develop concepts that
are fundamental in communication research. Graduates of the program will
be in an advantageous position for seeking careers in 
non-governmental organizations, public administration, international
organizations, private and public media as well as businesses with a
strategic planning and public relations component.

Please note that there will be no tuition fee for all good and
outstanding applicants that are admitted. There are two rounds of
admission, the first with a deadline of February 1, the second with a
deadline of May 1.
