Course Overview

In distance learning communication design, we specifically promote your creative, artistic-creative, conceptual and methodical skills. We pay particular attention to teaching application-oriented skills, theoretical knowledge and the development of practical skills.

Our bachelor's program is modular, which means that you study using subject areas that are divided into so-called "modules". Within these modules there is an introductory course and an in-depth course, which prepare you systematically for the completion of this module. Within the modules, you will receive ECTS points (European Credit Transfer System) for each successful completion, which document your performance. These ECTS points are internationally comparable and of course recognized.


In the sixth semester of your distance learning course, you choose your two specializations in the amount of 20 ECTS. To do this, you opt for at least one specialist specialization ("compulsory specializations") from the field of communication design and at most one functional and industry specialization ("specialization in elections").

Some exemplary election specializations are:

  • Online and Social Media Marketing
  • User experience
  • event management
  • Augmented, Mixed and Virtual Reality
  • Business Consulting
