Studenter Media City Bergen

The Department of Information Science and Media Studies is the result of a merger between the two former entities – The Department of Information Science and The Department of Media Studies. The two disciplines joined forces in 2004 against a technological backdrop where convergence within various media and communication forms called for increasingly interdisciplinary research. Core research efforts at the Department includes the study of information and communication technologies, their social and historical developments, their institutional contexts, their contents and their use(r)s.
