Media, Culture & Society

The master Media Studies offers a one-year pre-master for promising candidates who do not have a previous education equivalent to an academic bachelor. This preparatory programme caters in particular to students who have limited experience with media and communication theory and social-scientific research methods.

The pre-master is suitable for graduates of HBO (Dutch Higher Vocational Education) programmes or equivalent international programmes that deal with similar topics as the Media, Culture & Society  programme, but with relatively limited academic depth.

Bridging the knowledge gap

The pre-master Media Studies in Rotterdam is a highly intensive one-year course preparing you for the master specialisation Media, Culture & Society. During the pre-master, you will enrol in selected courses of the International Bachelor Communication and Media. You will become acquainted with key concepts and approaches in media and communication studies and the social sciences.

After a successful completion of the pre-master, you will have the knowledge and skills you need to meet the requirements of the master Media Studies specialisation Media, Culture & Society. Students who successfully finish the pre-master will have direct access to the master specialisation.

Developing analytical and research skills

You will receive advanced academic training in the pre-master. You will improve analytical skills to critically analyse current developments in the field of media and communication. In addition, you will practice writing academic papers and conducting social scientific research. At the end of the pre-master year, you can put your newly gained research skills and knowledge to good use when you write your final assignment, a bachelor thesis.
