During the one-year Master’s programme in New Media & Digital Culture, you will delve into the many aspects of what it means to live in an age of new media. Guided by experienced scholars you will assist with research projects and learn to reflect critically on how present-day cultures are shaped by social media, data, games, internet activism, apps, data visualisations, mobile devices, algorithms, and participatory platforms. 

The programme pivots around three contemporary features of new media technologies and their relationship to culture and society, namely: the mobile/urban aspect, the ludic/games aspect, and the software/data aspect. While the programme highlights the overlaps and synergies between these aspects, students can also choose to specialise in a profile. Engaging with a profile means following a set trajectory of courses and a profile-related internship and thesis.

For students looking for an extra challenge, Utrecht University offers several interdisciplinary honours programmes.
