About

The Master in Screen Cultures at University of Oslo lets you study how screens affect our understanding of the world, through the different screens of the cinema, television, computer and smartphone, their films, series, games, and social media.

Overview

As a Master in Screen Cultures at University of Oslo student, you will acquire screen literacy. Since screen edges have become the ledges of what we know, our central research question then, is: “How do the distinct qualities of screens and the conditions of viewing they afford, affect our understanding of the world?” Screen Cultures examines the screens that provide and prohibit access to our global realities and affect all aspects of our everyday lives. And our objective and vision are to challenge and ultimately change the way we view screens.

Among the objects of study are screens of all kinds and sizes, such as the cinema, television, computer and smartphone screens, their films, series, games, social media, GPS-enabled maps, workout stats, simulations and augmentations. Invariably, we will approach these objects with a focus on the cultures they are embedded in and that, in turn, evolve around them. Our research and teaching continuously reflects on the ongoing technological and cultural shifts tied to our everyday screen living.

The candidate:

  • has advanced knowledge of the histories, aesthetics, theories, technologies, and politics of screens, such as the cinema, television, computer, and smartphone screen.
  • can identify and assess issues pertaining to screens and the cultures evolving around them, in a critical and reflected manner.
  • has advanced knowledge within media and communication, as well as cultural studies, including critical and aesthetic theory and methods.
  • can apply his/her knowledge actively to develop the field of screen cultures further and explore new areas of research.
  • can analyze and interpret media texts and cultural artifacts pertaining to the field of screen cultures independently.
