Leiden University

Master Postgraduate Leiden

Course description

Qualification Master of Science
Field of study Humanities, social sciences, communication and arts
Course summary Digital media are everywhere and are therefore a major part of our lives and the lives of our children.
Course description Digital Media in Human Development is one of the nine specialisations of the master's programme in Education and Child Studies that you can choose at Leiden University. The master's specialisation Digital Media in Human Development distinguishes itself from other programmes in the field of digital media by paying explicit attention to the role of digital media in child rearing, education, the treatment of problems and how digital media influence child development. Why choose this specialisation? Child rearing and instruction are changing under the influence of digital media, that is characterized by rapid developments in applications for computers, mobile telephony, handhelds, virtual reality, internet, MOOCs, serious gaming and other digital devices and techniques. Given the new opportunities offered by digital media, but also the inherent dangers and risks, it is essential to equip students who will be taking up practical, policy oriented and scientific positions in this field with evidence based knowledge.
