Understand modern and contemporary media and audiovisual culture

Arts & Culture: Comparative Arts and Media Studies

Our programme will equip you with the skills necessary to navigate the contemporary arts scene and media culture.

You will have a strong theoretical foundation that you can use to critically analyse and historically contextualise complex intermedial processes and practices. The programme will enable you to use comparative methods to explore aesthetic, technological and other aspects of contemporary culture. This can be applied both to traditional media such as film, television, radio, and the visual arts, as well as more contemporary media forms including games, web-based formats such as memes, apps, platforms and interfaces.

Practical skills may be obtained through internships in various cultural institutions.

You will acquire a set of overarching competencies that are highly valued in the job market irrespective of your career: critical thinking, research design and analytical skills, and the ability to communicate and present complex ideas with clarity.

Alumni of our programme work for cultural heritage institutions, including museums and archives, are active in curation, national and international cultural policy or editorial roles. Other possibilities include work in media production and distribution, social media, communication and public relations, as well as in festival and event organisation and higher education and research.
