The Bachelor's in Media and Information is dedicated to the exploration of digital culture and today’s ubiquitous forms of information. The programme provides you with the skills necessary to engage with contemporary themes such as surveillance, big data, digital archiving, citizen journalism, and the metrification of everyday life.
This year, you won’t be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our online Open House is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home.
Every study programme has an Open House page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Open House website you can discover all our programmes,explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
In their private lives and as citizens or professionals, people constantly produce and use information. Contemporary life is shaped by ever more complex information technologies and an intensifying information economy. Information has become central to the arts, humanities, creative industries, journalism, and government and administration. Media and Information provides you with advanced conceptual and practical tools to understand the shifts in culture and society brought about by the constant transformation of the media.
