Culture and Politics (MA)

The master Culture and Politics at Leiden University encourages critical perspectives on complexities of culture as an inextricable part of global politics.

Explore the relationship between politics and culture

You will join a master's programme which considers the cultural dynamics of power, dominance, and resistance. As part of the programme you will study the relationship between political concepts and a large variety of cultural forms. The programme also examines the transnational production, distribution, and consumption of culture, problematising “national” cultural and “soft power” policies. In addition, you will address phenomena such as emotion, subliminal representation, and transnational flow of cultural products and ideas in depth.

Benefit from unique expertise

You will benefit from the close contacts between the University and national and international government institutions in The Hague, as well as the unique wealth of area studies at Leiden University.

Additional MA in International Affairs

During your studies, you are eligible to apply to the prestigious MA in International Affairs at the School of Advanced International Studies of Johns Hopkins University, Bologna.
