Full course description
Students write an extensive MA thesis of at least 24.000 words, for which they independently and individually conduct research in the field of media/digital cultures. The MA thesis is written under supervision of one of the MA teaching staﬀ members (but they may also choose another supervisor from the FASoS staﬀ). For the assessment a second reader will be added.
The thesis, as a traditional final assessment of a MA programme,provides students with the opportunity of engaging in in depth research and deepening their knowledge of a specific field in media/digital cultures. The thesis is research-oriented and students often choose it as preparation for a second MA programme or for future research. Students have wide latitude in their choice of topic, with the caveat that it draws from the theories, methods, and/or practices taught in the MA MC:DC programme.
