The UAS Graubünden and the Maz - The Swiss School of Journalism are pleased to announce their cooperation in the context of a specialization offer in the Multimedia Production (MMP) degree program. The cooperation builds on the bachelor's degree program "Multimedia Production" of the UAS Graubünden and the Maz advanced training courses in journalism and synergistically combines the existing strengths into a new offering, the institutions write in a joint statement.

The new "Maz Vertiefung Journalismus" is intended to provide an additional specialization in a core topic of the bachelor's program, in which students spend a year intensively studying journalistic work processes and practical applications, from topic identification and research to the preparation of statistics and data journalism to community management.

With the new Maz specialization in journalism, students in the FHGR's Multimedia Production bachelor's program can spend a year intensively studying journalistic work processes and practical applications.

Added value for students

An integrated editorial internship is intended to further increase the practical relevance of the Multimedia Production bachelor's degree program, it continues. "The new offering combines the teaching of theoretical knowledge with direct application in an optimal way. In this immersion, students can solidify their newly acquired skills in everyday editorial work and subject them to a valuable reality check," explains Maz Director Martina Fehr. This combination should create added value for both institutions.
