 The programme provides film studies and media history students with an opportunity for interdisciplinary specialisation. The name of the field, film and media history, underlines that the media manifestations studied are placed in a historical and therefore social, cultural and political context. This synchronic perspective is juxtaposed with a diachronic one in which processes of change within media history are studied from economic, technical, social and aesthetic perspectives. The aim of the programme is to prepare students for research studies and for work within different types of film and media activities: publishing houses, journalism, media companies, media archives, media education and communication. The MA in Film and Media History is a two-year programme including an opportunity to complete the programme after two semesters with a one-year Master’s degree.
