Media and communication studies at the Faculty of Arts, University of Zurich is both a modern and traditional subject built on a tradition of over 100 years. To this day, the main focus is on research and teaching: both basic and applied research whose results often flow into socio-political debates, and teaching in undergraduate programs that enjoy consistently high demand as well masters-level programs of study.

We offer media and communication studies at the IPMZ as a social-scientific subject coupled with the benefits of interdisciplinary cooperation. An essential element in our programs is an established, methodical approach which also characterizes our teaching. We apply our teaching and research to both the Swiss communication and media environment as well as its international counterparts. Our international awareness is also reflected in a number of different cooperation and exchange programs for students.
