Welcome to the website of the Chair of Communication Science with a focus on Economics and Media Organization.
Our research activities focus on three main topics:
(a) Economic behaviour and development of demand for media products (time use, consumption and advertising expenditure);
(b) Economic behaviour and structural change of the media economy and the media system (provider structure and structure of media supply);
(c) Objectives and measures of media regulation to ensure the diversity and quality of the media supply.
The research results flow into the media economics courses offered by the professorship.
On the following pages you will find information on the persons at the chair, on concrete research activities and on topics of selected theses.
