    Research and teaching are closely coordinated and clustered around four main topics:


    Our international Master’s programme, Screen Cultures, starts in the fall of 2019 and is presently open for applications. We are looking for motivated students with a keen interest in film, television, and digital media.

    All courses are in the English language, spanning from the history of screens to their political implications, from technological aspects to the aesthetics on and of screens.
