MA Serial Storytelling
The international Master’s program »Serial Storytelling« helps young media professionals explore, conquer, and expand forms and methods of serial narration for TV and digital platforms. Accompanied by renowned series creators, dramaturges and media scholars, the students analyze the secrets behind the success of popular series and develop their own series concepts. Series dramaturgy, character development, and collaborative writing processes such as the »Writers’ Room« are at the center of the practical work. In addition to narrative and media-theoretical content, the program also conveys the basics of transnational markets and new media platforms and supports the students in exploring innovative narrative forms, work structures, and distribution channels. Starting in September 2015, the international track will be supplemented with a German language track.
The Master’s program »Serial Storytelling« is supported by partners such as RTL and Sky Deutschland.
