Media Studies (MA)
Get the most out of your studies at Leiden University by taking part in our extracurricular activities.
Throughout the year, activities are organised by both the programme and the study associations to encourage community building. Examples include: trips to media centres in others countries (organised by students and/or staff) and meetings with alumni.
Teaching generally takes the form of small-scale seminars and tutorials, in which lively and engaging discussions are encouraged. Small classes allow for plenty of contact between you and your lecturers and fellow students, ensuring you get the most from this educational opportunity.
Studying abroad is an option during your master in Media Studies. The International Office of the Faculty of Humanities will be able to help you make the right decision for your time studying abroad.
