Why this programme?
This programme is unique in The Netherlands in that it combines digital media studies and digital humanities providing you with a thorough grounding in key theories, methods, user practices, and skills for a wide range of professions after your studies.
We provide you with opportunities to work, not simply on assignments, but on real-world problems and projects, often in team settings. We teach not only in a problem-based environment, but extend this to project-based learning. You will be trained to become both a media researcher and an active player in contemporary digital society. You will also develop expertise by investigating questions such as:
- How do new technologies affect the media landscape and society at large?
- How Web 2.0 approaches to the development of online content change user expectations and practices?
- Where do we draw the line between reality and the virtual world?
- What are the ethical, methodological, theoretical, and practical issues regarding the (re)presentation of the analogue into the digital?
