Internationally oriented journalism

The Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Journalism, Media and Globalisation is a master's degree that offers a unique educational experience with students studying and living in at least two European countries.

Students learn to combine academic, theoretical knowledge with journalistic skills, and to analyse, interpret and generate knowledge about the global changes that increasingly challenge traditional boundaries between media, politics, technology and culture.

Learn at leading institutions

The programme has been granted the EU’s Erasmus Mundus label. Students spend their first year jointly between Aarhus University — taught by faculty from both the Department of Political Science and the Department of Information and Media Studies — and the highly respected Danish School of Media and Journalism.

In year two, the programme  splits into four specialisms, offered by some of Europe’s leading universities. This allows students to customise their studies in the following areas:

  • Media and Politics at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands
  • Business & Finance Journalism at City University in London, UK
  •  Comparative and Transcultural Approaches at the University of Hamburg in Germany
  •  War and Conflict at University of Swansea in Wales

This is just af brief introduction to the study. Follow the link and read much more about the Erasmus Mundus.

Please note that the application deadline is the 10th of January
