Program Overview

E-Media Group

The Munich Summer Curriculum (MSC) offers an innovative, challenging summer academy focusing on electronic media. 

The MSC is offered jointly with the Ludwigs Maximilians University (LMU) in Munich, Germany. The Colorado European Union Center of Excellence (CEUCE), located at the University of Colorado at Boulder (CUB), is also sponsoring the attendance of CUB undergraduate students. The MSC introduces students to the subject of electronic media, including media technology, informatics, media theory, business and media, media ethics and communication science. "Survival" German language instruction and a cultural immersion program are an integral part of the curriculum. The program culminates in an Internship with a media organisation in the Munich metroplex. The language of instruction is English.

Pulsing with prosperity and Gemütlichkeit (cosiness), Munich revels in its own contradictions. Folklore and age-old traditions exist side by side with sleek BMWs, designer boutiques and high-powered industry. Its museums include world-class collections of artistic masterpieces, and its music and cultural scenes give Berlin a run for its money.

Despite all its sophistication, Munich retains a touch of provincialism that visitors find charming. The people’s attitude is one of live-and-let-live – and Müncheners will be the first to admit that their ‘metropolis’ is little more than a Weltdorf, a world village. During Oktoberfest representatives of the entire planet turn out to toast the town.
