Programme overview

Media, Culture & Society
MCS student on campus

Media, Culture & Society is one of the five master Media Studies specialisations. Against the backdrop of quickly digitalising societies, increasing cultural diversity, and media saturation, Media, Culture & Society allows you to study the societal impacts and uses of established and emerging media. You will be confronted with the shifting relations between the private and the public, the global and the local, citizens and consumers, the media user and the producer. You will acquire the expertise to apply these insights and conduct research in relation to a wide range of topics and organisations, including—but not limited to—NGO’s, political and research institutions, and media organisations.

Trained by international experts in an interactive class environment, Media, Culture & Society graduates are equipped with theoretical and hands-on knowledge about current and future media developments. You will also have the opportunity to apply for several(extra-curricular) honours projects.
