Since 2003, the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg has been the only state-run higher education institution in Germany to offer degree programmes in the fields of popular music and music and creative industries. During the Corona crisis, the Popakademie Baden-Württemberg massively expanded its already existing online teaching offer, which means that excellent teaching, both in hybrid form and purely digital, is offered throughout. Online events regularly attract international audiences and different learning platforms serve students for exchange.
