Television and Cross-Media Culture
The Television and Cross-Media Culture (Media Studies) programme of the University of Amsterdam explores contemporary media culture from a critical perspective. The programme offers you the tools to understand and evaluate the ongoing transformation of media culture and its impact on culture, politics and everyday life. Taking television as a starting point, it maps out the conceptual, social and cultural challenges that come with digital, mobile and social media.
The Master's in Television and Cross-Media Culture prepares you for a broad range of career opportunities within the field of Media Studies.
The job market
