About

The programme in Film and Media Studies at the University of Copenhagen teaches you to analyse film, TV, radio, newspapers, digital media and the relations between media, culture and society.

Overview

The programme in Film and Media Studies at the University of Copenhagen is a blend of elements from the humanities and the social sciences, building on a theoretical, analytical and historical foundation as well as incorporating the more practical aspects of media production and communication. 

Having completed the Film and Media Studies programme, you will be able to apply relevant narrative, aesthetic and psychological theories in the analysis of the effects used in films, TV and digital media. You will also be able to conduct analyses of the functions of audiovisual media in society.
