Book and Digital Media Studies (MA)
Get the most out of your studies at Leiden University by taking part in our extracurricular activities.
As a student of the master Book and Digital Media Studies, you will be able to participate in the production and promotion of TXT, the yearbook published by the programme in cooperation with Academic Press Leiden. This journal is fully produced by Book and Digital Media Studies students and focuses on all aspects of textual communication.
Throughout the year, the Book and Digital Media Studies programme organises activities to encourage community building. Examples include excursions to museums and exhibitions, learning to use a real printing press. 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.
