What can you do with an Online Culture: Art, Media and Society degree?
- A (web)editor is responsible for (web)content. You create content, review content made by others, or a combination of the two. Not only do you critically look at the content, but also at the design. You may also have a coordinating role and direct others. As an editor, you could work with journalistic content, but also with content for education, marketing or public relations.
- As a policy advisor or officer, you develop policies for organizations such as cultural institutions, municipality or educational institutions. You for example can conduct a policy to make the cultural offering of a city more attractive and accessible to all residents. Or work on policy aimed at making schoolchildren more 'media savvy'. A different example is a communication policy to ensure an open dialogue between an institution and the public. You are closely connected to what goes on in society, and therefore maintain a network within and outside an organization.
- A digital content coordinator is responsible for developing content for digital communications. For example through websites, social media platforms or online campaigns. You do not just focus on the content, but also on the design and potential interaction you want to provoke. You create content, direct others to make content or do both. With a good SEO and SEA strategy you ensure that the content rises to the attention of your target audience.
Graduates go on to work, for example, at the International Choreographic Arts Centre, Debut Contemporary, Clipboard Media & Content, Leiden University, or Music Academy INHolland.
