Double degree program with "Universitas Atma Jaya Yogyakarta" (UAJY)

As part of the more than 20-year cooperation with the "Universitas Atma Jaya Yogyakarta" (UAJY), one of the largest and most renowned universities in Indonesia, a double degree program will be established at the beginning of the winter semester 2022/23, based on the bachelor degree programs "Applied Media and Communication Science" (AMW) of TU Ilmenau and "Communication Science" of UAJY.

Students of TU Ilmenau can acquire the academic degree of Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) of UAJY in the course of their regular six-semester studies in addition to their AMW degree. The year abroad, which is integrated into the regular course of study, prepares graduates of the dual degree program for a global career. In addition to additional specialized knowledge, they acquire advanced language skills and intercultural competencies with a focus on Asia. In addition, the double degree program provides diverse insights into the extremely dynamic economic, cultural and media development of Southeast Asia.

Curriculum for Bachelor students at TU Ilmenau

Bachelor students at TU Ilmenau study a total of six semesters to achieve the double degree. After the first year, German students spend their third and fourth semesters at UAJY, where they are integrated into the fifth and sixth semesters of the eight-semester program there and attend communication studies courses in English. The bachelor double degree program concludes with the bachelor thesis, which is written in English at the home university and supervised by a professor from each of the two partner universities.
