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.
Media and Culture
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.
Media and Information
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.
