The degree programme runs over four semesters. The first semester covers fundamental aspects of theory and methodology in relation to the humanities and computer science. During the rest of the degree programme, students can choose free electives, work placements, stays abroad and team projects.


In a project lasting one year, students work in groups and/or with external partners to explore current research issues. This allows them to consolidate and apply the knowledge they have acquired.

The free electives allow students to extend their academic horizons depending on their own individual choice of specialisation. They can choose modules from neighbouring disciplines such as computer linguistics, digital art history, museum studies, theatre and media studies, cultural geography, archaeology or other humanities.

In the fourth semester, the students write a Master’s thesis in their chosen specialisation and present it for discussion.
