German University Offering New Digital Media Law Program In Cooperation With Film University Babelsberg

The University of Potsdam program will be taught in German and English

Germany's University of Potsdam has partnered with Film University Babelsberg Konrad Wolf and the Erich Pommer Institute for Media Law and Research (EPI) to offer a new master's-level program in digital media law.

The program will be taught in a combination of English and German, taking two years if studied full-time.

Course content is intended to cover the intersecting worlds of law, business and the creative industries for those who already have professional experience in one of those sectors and wish to broaden their career perspectives.

The program is flexible, offering the possibility for students to study part-time, with seminars taking place Thursdays-Saturdays. Those graduating will have the opportunity to graduate with either an LL.M. or an MBA; a double qualification is also possible.

Applications for the winter semester close 31 July 2017.

Potsdam is also home to Babelsberg Studio, Europe's largest film studio, which has been the site where hundreds of films—including Fritz Lang's Metropolis and the more recent Cloud Atlas—were shot.
