Alexandra Koukidou, MA Media Studies: Digital Cultures

Alexandra Koukidou is from Greece, she has a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and Mass Communications from the University of Thessaloniki in Greece and decided to come to Maastricht for the master’s programme Media Studies: Digital Cultures.

“I wanted to expand my knowledge and widen my perspective to media in general and new media in particular. As an exchange student I’d spent 5 months in the Netherlands and I liked it so much here that I decided to do my master’s in this country. I looked at several universities, but Maastricht University immediately stood out with its informative and well-structured website. In addition, I particularly liked this programme because it’s so topical and up to date and offers me lots of professional opportunities. The digital media and new emerging technologies we learn about are trends we are all witnessing right now.  After I graduate I would like to work in a communication design environment with video and sound production, translating concepts/ideas into products with a meaningful impact.”
