Since 2001, the Hanover University of Applied Sciences and Arts has been the only institution in Germany to offer a degree programme in photography with a focus on photojournalism and documentary photography. The goal of the course is to develop photographic personalities who are prepared for the challenges and potential of a visual journalism that is constantly reinventing itself. They must also have the ability to translate their relationships with the world into their own visual forms.
Teaching and research, practical relevance, further education and internationality characterize the standing of Hanover’s University of Applied Science and Arts. With about 10,000 students, it is the second-largest postsecondary institution in the capital of Lower Saxony, currently offering a broad spectrum of education in 60 programs of study at various locations in Hanover.

The university’s proximity to companies and organizations representing forwardlooking professional sectors, encourages contact.
