Information Design


Information Design

Do you enjoy an interdisciplinary mix of design, programming and language, and are curious about the creative experimental field of analog and digital media? Are you interested in current topics from politics, business and science - and do you see the need to communicate these topics simply and clearly for a large group of users? If so, we'd love to get you excited about a course of study in which you'll conceptualize and design multimedia user experiences in the jungle of information.

Critical reflection and vivid presentation

In the Information Design degree program, you will learn to research and reflect on a wide variety of socially relevant topics. You will organize, systematize, clarify and reduce complex content into comprehensible information units and illustrate connections in the form of texts, graphics, animations, films or interactive applications. You will discuss relevant questions of our time and explore the exciting field of linguistic and visual communication. You work in teams or individually. Professors, staff and lecturers support you in discovering and individually developing your own talents.

Who is the program aimed at?

For the Information Design degree program, you need a love of experimentation, creativity and design skills as well as an interest in programming and working with software. You should be curious about complex and discursive discussions in the fields of politics, economics and science, and have good to very good German language skills. Previous professional training giving skills in media design or media informatics, photography, camera technology, journalism or strategic communication is useful - but not a prerequisite.


The range of tasks for Information Design graduates can take on a large range of tasks with many varied activities. You will find work with agencies in the creative industries, with communications departments of companies, universities, colleges and research institutions, with public broadcasters, publishing houses and with media companies.

Master's degree studies give you the opportunity to learn more about many facets of your Bachelor's degree and prepare you for future leadership roles.
