About Us

The Mundus Journalism Master's is a two-year, truly transnational degree providing a solid foundation for analysing and reporting global changes. 

Since its inception in 2005 more than 500 journalists spanning almost 100 countries have been educated through the programme. The cultural diversity brought together by such an international intake each year means that being a Mundus Journalism student is about gaining more than just academic insights - for many participants it is also an all-encompassing global and cultural experience.

The programme - supported by the European Commission under the Erasmus Mundus initiative - sees students spend one year in Aarhus, Denmark before moving to another European university to carrry out their specialist focus in the second year of study. It aims to produce theoretically grounded and highly reflexive journalism candidates with transnational, global views on the intersection of journalism, media and globalisation. 

Behind the degree stands a tightly integrated and experienced consortium of five European and three non-European universities. With students studying at up to four different universities during the programme, the depth of learning on offer is equalled by the breadth of different teaching styles and methods that participants have access to during their studies.
