Why you should study Cultural and Media Education 

The reflective use of media is especially important now that misinformation is lurking around every corner. As a student of Cultural and Media Education, you have the skills to support children, young people and adults in using media in a targeted way. In order to find the information they are looking for, to learn successfully and to communicate. During your studies, you will acquire the knowledge you need for this aim.  

Your career options multiply with your degree. Academics are preferred for many jobs, especially for higher positions. Studying is also an experience in itself. For many graduates, their time at university is one of the best of their lives. One thing is certain: lifelong learning is fun. Especially at IU. 

Your IU Studies in Cultural and Media Education
