With the course "Game Based Media & Education, MSc" a university course has been developed, which is increasingly oriented towards the individual research interests of the students and towards a future-oriented link to the current research practice of games, media and education research.

The course has a modular structure. The first four semesters can be individually compiled from various contents (modules) of the following courses:

  • Media Game Pedagogy
  • Action-oriented Media Pedagogy
  • Game Studies

In consultation with the head of the course, students can also choose from other courses offered by the centre.

In the 5th and 6th semesters, the students deepen their knowledge of the methodology of scientific work and write their Master's thesis. Finally, the research part of the Master's thesis must be submitted to a conference, a scientific journal or a journal.
