Institute For Music And Media
The Institute For Music And Media (IMM), a part of the internationally renowned Robert Schumann School of Music and Media in Düsseldorf, focuses on a combination of art, technology and theory. The broad range of courses and outstanding facilities available allow for both a high level of practical learning and critical reflection. In group projects, professors and assistant professors and students jointly contribute towards artistic media research.
With its dual artistic and scientific emphasis, the Music and Media study programme is completed with a Bachelor of Music degree. The Audio and Video programme, held jointly with Düsseldorf University of Applied Science, leads to a Bachelor of Engineering degree. Both programmes are designed to take eight semesters, and applicants are required to pass a test based on musical ability such as instrumental standard.
Institute of Church Music
The profession of church musician has undergone dynamic change in recent years. Work with children, laypeople and choirs is playing a greater and greater role.
For this reason, the interrelated modular structure of the Bachelor’s degree program is designed to combine high artistic qualification with instruction reflecting current practices. The Institute of Church Music has its own library and a large number of teaching and rehearsal studios with appropriate instruments. The Institute maintains close contact with potential employers of graduates, the specialized committees of the Archdiocese of Cologne and the Diocese of Essen, as well as the Protestant state church in Rhineland.
