The achievements of media education in higher education of Germany have been highlighted. The notions of media education that exist in scientific literature have been outlined. Media education has been defined as a direction in pedagogy (media pedagogy) aimed at an individual's media-culture formation in society, as well as a process of development and self-development by means of media materials and mass media. The main goal of media education is to enhance general, professional, communicative and creative competences. The main national programs of media education implementation into educational process of Ukraine and Germany are the following: "New Media in Education," "Media-pedagogical manifest," "Concept of Introduction of Media Education in Ukraine." The process of media pedagogy implementation in future native language teachers' professional training in Germany is developing in three directions: integrated, special and optional. In particular, the attention has been focused on using methods of media education in higher philological schools (methods of creative writing-creative linguistic project of German language teaching; portfolio as a method of students' media literacy (media competence) formation; methods of presenting a term paper in a form of television project; creating video libraries for teachers and students). The ways of implementing German experience in future philology teachers' professional training at Sumy State Pedagogical University named after A. S. Makarenko have been considered. The activity of students' scientific circle "Media Culture of Philology Teacher" has been characterized.
