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 Master's in Television and Cross-Media Culture 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.
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.
