List of courses at IMK

Screen Cultures also offers an opportunity to take an internship course as your elective course during you studies: 

MEVIT4704 – Screen Cultures Internship-Course

You can also apply to take a master's course at another department at the University of Oslo. This should normally be because the course has a connection with the topic of your Master's thesis. You need your supervisors recommendation to apply for this, and IMK can not guarantee admission, as this is up to the department that offers the course. 

The master's thesis

The master’s thesis is an independent research project. All students will be assigned a group supervisor at the beginning of the program and an individual supervisor in your second semester. 

As a student on the Screen Cultures Master' s program, you will take the Master's thesis course: MEVIT4791 – Master’s Thesis in Screen Cultures, with presentation (60 ECTS)

Please make yourself familiar with general information about the master's thesis at the Department of Media and Communication.

Placement semester

It is possible to take one semester as an intern at a workplace that the Department of Media and Communications has an arrangement with. The internship will not be paid. A project semester entails a 30 credit's master's thesis.
