Objectives of the certificate course

The English-language certificate course provides an overview of the digital transformations in media and law with a focus on an international level, presented by internationally recognised experts.

Qualification Profile

University graduates obtain a comprehensive overview of trends in the digitalisation of European law, as well as knowledge of the digital transformations in the fields of communication and media. Therefore, students acquire the necessary competences to understand recent digitalisation issues related to law, in particular in the field of intangible rights, data protection and media law, even if they do not have a (specialised) degree in law. Students are able to discuss the subject in English and – due to the focus on media studies – know how media and communication requirements as well as audiences may change. They understand the economic opportunities and societal challenges resulting from this change and how they can shape and use them in professional practice, also with regard to building their own career.
