Creative Media & Entertainment

German Media & Film Butler Media
The Media Arts Department at Butler University offered already over seven times the German Media experience. The program is open only to Media Arts majors and is limited to 15 students selected by the course instructors. Preference will be given to early applicants and to those who have not previously participated in the program.


What Will We Study?
Students will be based in Bonn and will study German Culture, Media, Film and Recording practices. There will be regular in-class sessions and numerous field trips to television stations, recording studios, multi-media production houses and cultural sites in several German cities. Students receive 3 hours of Butler Media Arts credit for the course.

Cities visited as part of the program will be Bonn, Cologne, Dusseldorf and Berlin. There will also be a cruise on the Rhine River and a visit to Marksburg Castle.

Free Time
You will have weekends free to travel on your own. (One three-day weekend is planned) Students have used this time to explore closeby areas or hopped a fast train to Paris, Brussels, Amsterdam, Prague, Munich or Hamburg. Bonn is centrally located, so nothing is very far away and the Eurail system is efficient and inexpensive.
