The selection process of the Media and Communications program at the European Graduate School EGS is stringent and personal. We consider only fiercely independent students who work well within a program combining distance learning, studies and limited residency in Saas-Fee, Switzerland. Our students are expected to choose their own emphasis and area of concentration as supported by their Master’s and Doctoral /PhD thesis / project. The language of instruction is English.
