Our new and dynamic digital age
Information, data, media and digitality have become ubiquitous features of our social, economic and political lives. All the world is connected and media and computational technologies have already converged into a small device we carry around in our pockets. News is sampled rather than broadcast. We converse through snippets of information shared via junk radio bands to a global clique. This digital hyper-archive of information is not only a resource to be accessed and consulted, but, as never before, the constituent data for new questions, new enquiries and new intrusions into our social and political lives. The methods of the previous age, methods of representation and fixed association, no longer apply to this new, dynamic, digital information world....

The Master’s in Museum Studies is a unique, one-and-half year professional programme that focuses on the museological field, and includes an intensive, 6-month internship.
A solid basis for working in a museum
The Master's programme Museum Studies prepares you for a position in the wider field of museum professions. You will gain first-hand experience in the sector during your studies when you complete an intensive internship at a Dutch or foreign museum.
The museological world is constantly on the move. Important historical events are followed by major societal shifts. Museums reflect this by means of exhibitions, changes in acquisition policy and architectural innovation. At the same time, internationalisation and globalisation require constant repositioning. The UvA Master's programme in Museum Studies emphasises the public face of the museum: where the visitors enter and where the collections tell their stories.
Museums arrange their collections to reflect the story they wish to tell. This concept is based on scientific research into exhibits but is also linked to ideology and political, religious and economic power. The question of which stories are being told by which objects are constantly subject to change. Museum Studies investigates the dynamics and raisons d'être of heritage museums, such as those focusing on antiquities, archaeology, ethnology, and history and art museums. This is always done from a solid cultural-history basis and in an international context.
Whether you would like to organise exhibitions, devise educational projects, manage museums, create policy, conduct scientific research or write reviews: it all starts with a...

In the one-year Master's programme Landscape and Heritage, you study the dynamic past of both contemporary and historical landscapes and explore the ways in which they are preserved and maintained as archaeological heritage.
Landscape and Heritage Archaeology
The Master’s programme Landscape and Heritage focuses on the significance of historical landscapes and materials in both later periods and the modern world. Natural landscape features, archaeological sites and objects from the past play an active role in the creation of social and collective memories. The programme draws close links between teaching and ongoing research, of which the application of GIS-based modelling is but one example. The programme has also forged strong ties with a number of archaeological institutions, such as the Allard Pierson....

The one-and-a-half-year Dual Master's programme in Preservation and Presentation of the Moving Image invites students to critically engage with current practices of collecting and selecting, preserving and restoring, and making accessible moving images and sound.
Ephemeral cultural heritage
Moving images and sound are part of our most cherished cultural heritage. They capture time and place and give shape to memory and history. They are also fleeting: they unfold in time and are affected by time. Environmental factors, material decomposition, and increasingly also technological obsolescence threaten the carriers on which they are held, and therefore, endanger their accessibility.
