Berlin School of Popular Arts
formerly known as SRH Hochschule der populären Künste (hdpk)

Welcome to Berlin and the Berlin School of Popular Arts

Study Creative Industries Management, Audio Design, Music Production or Popular Music in Berlin! 

The hdpk is a leading private university for the creative industries, situated in one of Germany´s creative hubs: in Berlin.

The study programs cover both artistic and technological aspects as well as practical management issues and media theory. Both the university itself and the lecturers are involved in the music and media markets, and their experience flows into the programs.

Central to the university’s teaching is that it is practice-related, reflected in the interdisciplinary. The curriculum is based on the reality of a rapidly changing professional world, ensuring that the study programmes are constantly being adapted to suit new requirements.

Both staff and members of the board of trustees are involved in the industry, which reinforces this approach. The hdpk opened in April 2010 as a private University of Applied Sciences and is approved by the Berlin Senate Department for Education, Science and Research.
