The Mundus Collection is a challenging and thought-provoking compilation of stories produced by students during the Mundus Journalism programme's second semester module Analytical Journalism. This module applies a theory-based methodology to journalistic inquiry. 

What starts off as class assignments each year, eventually turns into a series of analytical features covering stories from around the world. In writing these stories, these journalists were told to embrace a deeper style of journalism, looking beyond news hooks and well-known conflicts to broach complex solutions. 

These are long stories, ideal for leisurely reading, touching on science, law and economics, and they will bring you around the world, combining the best of expert opinion and local knowledge.In doing so, they also highlight the need for journalism that goes beyond local media and seeks out something greater: a global consciousness, and a global style of journalism.

Read the Mundus Collections from 2011 to 2018, with each website designed and curated by a student from that year's cohort:
