Research Master in the Sociology of Culture, Media and the Arts

The Erasmus School of History, Culture and Communication (ESHCC) and the Faculty of Social Sciences (FSW) offer a two-year Research Master's Programme in the Sociology of Culture, Media and the Arts.

This two-year Master's of Science (MSc) Programme is specifically intended for intellectually talented and academically motivated students who want advanced, research-oriented training in the sociology of culture and in media studies. Students with a relevant Master's diploma are eligible to apply for an abridged version of the programme.

The programme will prepare you to carry out research leading to a PhD in sociology, arts and culture studies, or in media studies. However, it is also an excellent stepping stone to a career outside the university, such as in applied social scientifc research, cultural policy, and consultancy in the media sector or art world.
