In this programme, you will study present-day media forms and explore how they are related to one another, while at the same time investigating the roots of this relatively new field.
This one-year master's programme has four specialisations, each of which considers the different forms of media, and how they interrelate: Comparative Literature and Literary Theory; Book and Digital Media Studies; Film and Photographic Studies; Journalism and New Media. You will study the media from a broad perspective, which will give you ample opportunity to create cross-connections between the different specialisations.
Programme internationalization: * Studying abroad is optional.
This programme has a workload of 60 ECTS.
Book and Digital Media Studies:
This one-year specialisation focuses on the dynamic process of the transmission of knowledge and information through analogue (print) and electronic (internet) media. You will study both the historical development - from Gutenberg to Gates - and the modern practice of textual communication within its societal and technological context. Special attention is paid to the far-reaching consequences of the digital revolution for the world of the book. The programme has three main points of focus: Digital access to cultural heritage; History of the book; Publishing Studies.
Comparative Literature and Literary Theory:
This one-year programme is not limited to the literatures of one specific language or culture, but offers a wide range of study options. It utilises the expertise and infrastructure available within the Faculty of Humanities to encourage an intercultural approach to literature. The programme includes four main fields of study which are integrated in the various courses: Literary Theory; Comparative Literature; Interculturality (cross-cultural approach); Intermediality (cross-mediatic approach).
Film and Photographic Studies:
Within the international academic context, this one-year programme is the only one to focus on film, video and photography while maintaining an interdisciplinary approach. The curriculum will provide you with an in-depth understanding of the specific histories, institutions and discourses of cinema, photography, video and other media. The staff maintain strong connections with other academic and cultural institutions within the Netherlands and abroad, providing students with immediate access to a broad professional network. Graduates of this master's programme are qualified for positions as film and photographic historian, museum curator, critic, manager of a photographic agency or exhibition producer.
