This includes the University of Bonn’s department for media science, the Center for Development Research (ZEF) and the Center for European Integration Studies (ZEI), as well as the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences, especially the technical journalism/PR program. Students will benefit from a unique mix of research, lectures and practical experience.
DW is Germany's international broadcaster: online, on-screen and over the air. It provides a European perspective to audiences around the world and promotes intercultural dialogue. Deutsche Welle fulfills this mission with a journalistic portfolio that includes DW-RADIO and the multimedia Internet portal DW.DE in 30 languages and with DW-TV in German, English, Arabic and Spanish. It also runs the DW Akademie, where radio professionals from developing and transition countries receive further training. Its projects promote more openness, clarity and participation among partners.
