At the University of Kentucky the HAW Hamburg has a cooperation with the College of Communication & Information, which has over 1,600 undergraduate students and offers five majors:

Students explore human interactions and the evaluation of communication processes. They take one of the following four tracks: Business & Organizational Communication, Digital & Mass Communication, Health Communication and Human Communication.

Information Communication Technology
Students gain knowledge and skills needed to effectively apply, use and manage technology when solving problems specifically related to information and communication. Classes provide a human and organizational focus on technology.

Integrated Strategic Communication
Students learn to coordinate multiple aspects of strategic communication such as advertising, direct response and public relations to deliver persuasive messages to consumers.

Students develop analytical and critical thinking skills to communicate with audiences across all media platforms for careers as reporters, photographers, videographers, editors, publishers, producers, anchors, social media content managers or other professions that require experience in writing, reporting, editing, curating, printing, broadcasting, web or social media.

Media Arts & Studies
This program promotes the study of the means of production and dissemination of digital content, and their ultimate effects on individuals, political communication, civic participation, media organizations, media policy and practices and society as a whole.
