When deciding what to study you undoubtedly read a lot of information about your study programme. Leiden University employs various systems to provide information about programmes and courses and to facilitate communication between lecturers and students.
The Prospectus contains information about all the courses within your study programme. Here you can find all you need to know about your programme. Via Blackboard you can communicate with your lecturers and submit assignments.
Photography, film and the so-called new media are well-known paradigms of media, but painting, sculpture, architecture, literature, etc. are also viewed as specific media. All these contribute to the formation of cultures. These formations in and by media change through history, and are therefore studied in this programme in a historical perspective. Media are seen as the building blocks of culture because it is in and through media that cultures are shaped. The programme pays close attention the content of what is being shaped by media (human subjectivity and behaviour, rituals, politics, et cetera).
