The Bachelor’s programme in Media and Culture puts the rapidly changing global media landscape centre stage and trains students to position themselves more critically within it, preparing them for careers in the media, at cultural institutions, and in academia.

Media Cultures

The world we live in is profoundly mediated. Many aspects of our daily lives are now fundamentally structured and informed by media, such as television, film, and new media – from the arts, politics, economics, to our collective memories. This has changed significantly in recent years because of our constant engagement with media through the use of smartphones, apps, and social media platforms, including YouTube, Instagram, Facebook, Netflix, WeChat, Whatsapp and Snapchat. We are constantly consuming and engaging with feature films, television programmes, documentaries, and many other types of audiovisual “texts”. The need to understand and analyse audiovisual discourse is, therefore, more urgent than ever - across all media platforms.... [-]

About

Before the beginning of the Christian era, Celtic-speaking people populated an area covering almost all of Europe as we know it today and developed rich cultures. In the Middle Ages, these same people were living in countries and regions still inhabited by Celtic-speaking peoples to this very day - Ireland, Scotland, Wales, Cornwall, and Brittany. Their culture is still giving rise to questions today in the 21st century. How do you pronounce Old Irish? Was King Arthur a real person? Which traces of the Celts are still evident in today's modern world? By studying Celtic Languages and Culture, you will learn how to find answers to all of these questions and also distinguish between myths and reality.... [-]

About

Why are populist political parties becoming increasingly popular? Is this a bad development? Do we have an obligation to save the natural environment for future generations? How has migration developed, and how has it contributed to shaping health care and education policy over time? What would the economic effects be if we gave all citizens a national basic income?

Though it is possible to answer complex questions like these, it is definitely not easy. To help solve our world’s biggest challenges, we need experts who are able to look at societal issues from various perspectives. Our new Bachelor of Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) meets this need. The program provides high-level, intensive training for students who are eager to find solutions to the world’s most pressing problems.... [-]

About

Theatre performances use film and new media. Television seeks to interact with its viewers through social media. Films consist of computer-generated imagery. These trends signal the need to study the interconnections between the different media. This approach is precisely the focus of the Bachelor’s program in Media and Culture.

The Media and Culture program studies different types of media in a broad context and in relation to one another. You learn about the history, theory and the larger social context in which different media function. We put great emphasis on developing academic skills in order to analyze a film, television program, game, dance or theatre performance.

Philosophy, Politics, and Society is a uniquely issue-oriented philosophy programme, in which you will study the philosophical underpinnings of global issues that will determine the course of the 21st century. The curriculum is organized around themes such as ecological crises, scientific progress, technological advances, identity politics, and the global political landscape and for each theme, you will examine a combination of key history philosophical texts, contemporary thinkers, and empirical cases. This programme explores the defining issues of the 21st century from a rich variety of theoretical perspectives, without the narrow economic programmes of traditional PPE (“Philosophy, Politics, and Economics”) programmes. Your first year will consist of a series of systematic introductory courses, and in your second and third year, you will tailor your curriculum to the global issues that you are most interested in. The PPS programme cooperates with other faculties including the Law, Management, Social Science, and Science Faculty to ensure that you can incorporate courses from different faculties in your curriculum. This programme also gives you the opportunity to spend three to six months studying abroad, in a country and university of your choice, or participate in the “Edges of Europe” minor, which combines policy-related courses with fieldwork in Cairo, Rome, Athens, St. Petersburg, and Rabat....
