Study programme

The pre-master's programme for the Master Media Studies in Rotterdam is a highly intensive one-year course preparing you for the Master’s programme Media, Culture & Society or Media & Business or Media & Creative Industries. You will learn about statistics and acquire academic skills, write a large number of essays and, to top it all off, conduct independent research. Clearly, we expect a lot of you. But your efforts will be rewarded when you can start the Master’s programme in the following year.

The courses

Below you can find the programmes for the three different pre-master's programmes. These English pre-masters prepare you for the corresponding master's programme of either Media & Business, Media & Creative Industries or Media, Culture & Society. The courses that are offered are part of our International Bachelor in Communication and Media (IBCoM). You will follow the lectures together with our bachelor students and the tutorials with pre-master's students. Both the lectures as the tutorials are fully taught in English.
