Course description

In today’s interconnected world, media representations significantly influence social and political landscapes. Understanding media and visual culture is essential. Media studies, grounded in social anthropology, provides a comprehensive approach to examining the intricate links between media, culture, and society. The three-year Master Program in Media Studies equips students with both theoretical and practical skills in visual anthropology, documentary arts (film, photography, installation), media culture, and media anthropology. This knowledge is applicable in academia, the arts, culture and media industries, and in social, applied, or educational media projects. Students delve into the theoretical and practical aspects of visual anthropology, gaining hands-on experience in film production, project development, and audio-visual installation. They develop the skills needed to produce their own research projects and media outputs. Designed for working professionals, this program allows individuals to study while maintaining their employment or other commitments. It is ideal for those with a background in social sciences and humanities, particularly in cultural, media, and communication studies. Explore the Master Program in Media Studies to advance your understanding and expertise in this dynamic field.
