Description

Advertisement

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.
