DW Akademie is Germany's leading organization for international media development. Our experts have been supporting and developing free and independent media since 1965.
We support the development of free and transparent media systems, quality journalism and advanced media skills. We conduct long-term projects in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America, the Middle East and Central Asia and work closely with local partners. DW Akademie focuses on professionalizing media workers and managers, and training up-and-coming journalists.
We offer intercultural and professional media training workshops in our centers in Bonn and Berlin, as well as traineeships for future DW journalists. DW Akademie also established the "International Media Studies" Master's program in 2009 which combines the areas of media development, media management, journalism and communications.
