The two-year international Erasmus Mundus Master's programme in Journalism, Media and Globalisation explores the practice and performance of journalism and the media in the context of a new environment shaped by globalisation, modernisation, commercialisation and 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 specialize in one of four distinct areas of journalism: Media and politics (University of Amsterdam), 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 is not intended to train students to become journalists. Rather, it is aimed at those already working as professional journalists who wish to develop their ability to communicate in a nuanced and contemporary way about issues related to globalisation.
