It is impossible to imagine life today without new media. The new specialisation Digital Media in Human Development is devoted to the opportunities and challenges of digital media in child rearing and education.
This master's specialisation distinguishes itself from other programmes in the field of digital media by paying explicit attention to the role of digital media in child rearing, education and the treatment of problems, and how digital media influence child development.

Child rearing and instruction are changing under the influence of digital media, that is characterised by rapid developments in applications for personal computers, mobile telephony, handhelds, virtual reality, internet, MOOCs, serious gaming and other digital devices and techniques. Given the new opportunities offered by digital media, but also the inherent dangers and risks, it is essential to equip students who will be taking up practical, policy-oriented and scientific positions in this field with 'evidence-based' knowledge.
