uniCROSS editorial training

Cross-media means using video, audio, text and images correctly, composing them in an optimum way and being clever in how you present them. All students and academics can receive training on the journalistic principles of media communication with uniTV, uniFM (88.4 MHz) and uniONLINE. All three media are included in the online presentation: radio and TV channels struggle to exist today without a website or a social media presence. Take this training and gain key qualifications for many future career paths.

You can find the latest posts, programmes and the uniFM live stream on the uniCROSS website.

Media and Cultural Studies practical module

If you can master media, you will be able to research it better. That’s why students on the Media and Cultural Studies Bachelor programme take their practical module in the University Library’s media centre. They produce short films, work on journalistic topics on the uniCROSS editorial program and create their own websites. We use this program to teach the tools of the trade for working with media. It is also a great way to incorporate more practical aspects into a course.
