Now Prof. Dr. Alexander W. Roos, Rector of the HdM, and Prof. Tanya Kane-Parry, Director of the MFA in TV, Film and Theater, the exchange agreement. The university partnership is new: It was decided in February 2019. Kane-Parry used a trip to Germany to visit partner universities - including the HdM. "California State University is an excellent university and we look forward to this partnership," said Roos at the signing. Kane-Perry is also looking forward to the partnership and the international exchange: "The cooperation offers students from both universities great opportunities to develop professionally and personally." Furthermore, Kane-Parry was enthusiastic about the excellent technical equipment that is available to the students at the HdM.

Exchange for students of the Audiovisual Media course

"The USA is one of the most popular destinations for our students to visit abroad. The fact that we now have a direct line to Hollywood for our filmmakers is of course the icing on the cake," says Martina Schumacher, Head of the International Office at the HdM, happily. Cal State LA is the fourth US partner university of the HdM, alongside Fitchburg State University, California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo and Syracuse University, New York State, with which the Media University has a direct agreement. The more than fifty-year-old state programs with California and Oregon continue to enjoy great popularity. From the winter semester 2020/2021, five students of the Audiovisual Media course can visit the partner university for one semester or one year. The application deadline for this is October 15, 2019
