Media Studies at the UvA comprises two larger, academic programmes of study in Media Studies, which focus on different key aspects of the development and impact of media: Media and Culture and Media and Information.
We are living in a profoundly mediatised world. The Bachelor’s programme in Media and Culture engages with our rapidly changing global media landscape and prepares students for careers in academia, media and for work at cultural institutions. The programme is offered in both English and Dutch.
The Bachelor's in Media and Information is dedicated to the exploration of digital culture and today’s ubiquitous forms of information. The programme provides you with the skills necessary to engage with contemporary themes such as surveillance, big data, digital archiving, citizen journalism, and the metrification of everyday life.
What does the field of Media Studies entail? What are the similarities and differences between the two programmes? Why choose Media Studies instead of Communication Science? What sort of workload should I expect? Questions such as these will be answered during the webinar. Two current students talk about student life and share their experiences with studying Media Studies at the UvA.
