    If you are interested in studying contemporary media culture from a critical perspective, then the Master's programme Television and Cross-Media Culture is what you're looking for.

    The programme offers the tools to understand and to evaluate the ongoing transformation of media culture and its impact on culture, politics and everyday life. It also takes television as a starting point to map the conceptual, social and cultural challenges that come with digital, mobile and social media. The Master's in Television and Cross-Media Culture provides students with an in-depth knowledge in contemporary cross-media culture, viewed from historical, theoretical and critical perspectives, and applied to such topics as: * relationship between private and public; * political agency of audiences and users; * economic and technological contexts of cultural production; * aesthetic forms between story-telling and interface; * popular and professional knowledge production through media. The programme does not train you in producing media content. It will instead teach you how to identify the most important dynamics of our media culture and how to conceptualise them in a critical and meaningful way. This will allow you to participate in ongoing debates and to give relevant input to cultural, political or industrial endeavors concerning media culture.

    The programme in Television and Cross-Media Culture comprises 60 ECTS credits:

    • 30 credits for Master's courses
    • 10 credits for a theme course or an elective course
    • 20 credits for a Master's thesis.

    The specific number of credits a student is required to obtain through coursework is determined by the admissions committee and is based on the student's previous qualifications. Fulfilment of all the requirements will take at least one year.

    Students fluent in Dutch can choose the career-oriented specialisation in the Television Studies programme.* The career-oriented specialisation is taught in Dutch. This specialisation comprises 60 ECTS credits:

    • 12 credits for Master's courses
    • 18 credits for the (Dutch) Research and development for documentary and fiction
    • 12 credits for a AV-lab or internship
    • 18 credits for a Master's thesis

    * Due to the limited number of internships and available places, the career-oriented specialisation has a selection procedure.

    Thesis

    The Master's thesis reports on research carried out by the student under the supervision of two academic staff members involved in the programme. The subject of the thesis must be agreed upon by the student and the academic adviser(s). The final text should be approximately 15,000 words.

    Students who show exceptional promise during a regular or professional programme are encouraged to continue their studies in a Researchprogramme.
