As a Department located in the heart of Amsterdam, we are embedded in a pioneering culture of media artists, activists, institutions and associations in and around the city. This culture extends to the various organisations and initiatives at the University around media work.
Several organisations at the University of Amsterdam offer opportunities for students interested about making media professionally. Some of these organisations are dedicated to studying the media, others produce their own media, and several provide options for internships and finding out more about the (Dutch) media industry.
The organisations listed here are either directly affiliated with the Media Studies Department and the University of Amsterdam, or have otherwise strong ties with the work that we do.
