The Erasmus Mundus programme originates from a long tradition of collaboration in research and teaching between eight European and non-European universities.
In 2004 this cooperation was taken further and the Mundus Journalism Consortium was established in order to apply to the EU to become an Erasmus Mundus Consortium that could offer a Mundus Master's degree. The application was successful and the Consortium was granted the Erasmus Mundus label in 2005.
Since 2005 the Mundus Journalism Consortium has been offering the 2-year Master's programme: Journalism, Media and Globalisation, which has a track record of more than 500 successful alumni from more than 100 different countries.
