Media Studies: Film and Photographic Studies
This one-year master’s programme takes an interdisciplinary approach to the study of ‘lens-based’ media: photography, film and video. Designed for students with an undergraduate degree in a related field or relevant professional experience, this programme offers excellent preparation for a career in cinema, photography or media art.
A high degree of cross-disciplinary thinking is encouraged, as is witnessed by the close collaboration with the Department of Art History and other departments of Leiden University as the Print Room/Division of Special Collections of the Leiden University Library.

The various courses are offered in the form of lectures, meetings, discussions, seminars and excursions and through self-study, based on specific texts or photograpic objects, (historical) photographic sources, and in-depth analysis of history and criticism of photography.
Students work on various projects and presentations, and they are given the opportunity to follow an internship in the Netherlands or abroad.
