Since its inception in 2005 the Erasmus Mundus Journalism Consortium has had the ambition of advancing research on global aspects of journalism, setting new standards for European education and creating new job qualifications for students on the global market.
The consortium of five leading European universities and three high profile universities in the USA, Australia and South America and a number of media partners have worked hard to fulfill this ambition with a track record of more than 500 successful alumni.
The Mundus Journalism programme is part of the wider Erasmus Mundus Master's initiative of the European Union and was developed as a response to a growing need for journalism candidates who think and act across boundaries of nations, cultures and knowledge.
'The Mundus Journalism programme is a unique and invaluable programme drawing from the intersection between academic scholarship in global studies and the so-called real-world of journalistic inquiry.' Mark Shapiro, Senior Correspondent, Centre for Investigative Reporting, California
