Separately and collectively

Media studies has as its objects of study and conceptual concerns a rich variety of cultural objects and practices, as seen through both disciplinary and cross-disciplinary lenses. Film studies, television and cross-media culture, new media and digital culture, comparative media studies, journalism and media, cultural information science, archival studies as well as digital humanities — each area has a particular medium, media type or cultural practice as its primary point of departure for in-depth study, yet has objects, methods and concepts in common across the breadth of media studies. Media studies in Amsterdam is unique and well situated in its combination of disciplines, approaches and expertise to train students and researchers for intellectual work across the creative industries and beyond.
