Program description

The programme explores the practice and performance of journalism and the media in the context of an environment shaped by globalisation, modernisation, commercialisation & professional developments.

The programme offers students a unique experience of studying in two European countries. Students are spending the first year in Aarhus, Denmark, and then transfer to another university to specialise in one of four distinct areas of journalism: media and politics (University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands), war and conflict (University of Swansea, UK), business and finance journalism (City University London, UK) or comparative and transcultural approaches (University of Hamburg, Germany). There are additional opportunities for an exchange at Berkeley, Sidney or Santiago de Chile. This Master's programme is not intended to train students to become journalists. Rather, it is aimed at those already working as professional journalists who wish to further develop their analytical skills and learn more about issues related to globalisation and journalism.
