Music, movies, TV programmes, social media, magazines, books, games, vlogs, apps, advertisements, commercials, brand logos. People are in contact with products of the media and creative industries all the time. The industries creating and disseminating these products are not just economically increasingly important, they also have a wide-ranging cultural impact. The media and creative industries have greatly transformed in recent years, due to digitalisation, internationalisation, and economies of scale, but also under the influence of socio-cultural, political and economic developments.
The Media & Creative Industries programme covers current issues in organisation, policies, production, management, marketing and distribution of media companies and creative industries, paying due attention to the impact of digitalization and digital media and the role of audiences.
While the programme focuses on the workings of the media and creative industries, it also addresses the cultural significance of the media and creative industries for society.
The programme meets the growing demand for academically trained media and creative industry experts who are able to respond effectively and inventively to changing conditions, complex issues, and new opportunities for media and creative enterprises.
The curriculum is small-scale, intensive and interactive. Seminars, workshops, field trips and guest lectures provide a varied and challenging programme. Much attention is given to academic skills: you learn to present, debate, write and analyse. You receive support from an enthusiastic team of international lecturers. Your own input is valued and counts as part of your assessment. In addition, you can expect intensive, individual guidance when writing your master thesis.
Below you can view the fulltime programme of the Master Media & Creative Industries for the year. Please note that the content, themes and scheduling of seminars and workshops is subject to change and may vary in subsequent academic years.
The master programme can be completed part time. We do not offer any evening classes, but the course load can be spread over two years. A personal study programme will be developed in agreement with the student advisor.
