Bachelor of Arts in Media and Information — University of Amsterdam


My three-year study in Media and Information at the faculty of Humanities. I also completed a minor in Sociology (Social Sciences department) in my final year. My graduating thesis focused on web shops as consumer-exploiting platforms by using interface and tracking strategies. Read my thesis here.

With this major, I delved into topics of data and platform capitalism, the digitised world, questions about privacy and user agency. Additionally, I got the opportunity to choose extracurricular classes that focused on issues of identity, nationality, and other cultural phenomena.

I ended my final semester with a Minor in Sociology, where i studied themes of intersectionality, migration, urbanisation, postcolonial thought, and basic sociological theories.
