The Mundus Journalism programme consists of a common year for all students at Aarhus University and the Danish School of Media and Journalism, and a second specialism year at one of the programme's other four European partners. Some students also have the option of spending a semester abroad at one of the programme's non-European partner universities during the second semester of the first year.

In all, the programme:

  • gives a thorough knowledge of globalisation from a political science and media studies perspective
  • establishes a strong methodological foundation for both scientific and journalistic knowledge production
  • explores how technology, politics, economics and business and culture intersect within the profession of journalism
  • combines theory and practice to produce a more analytical journalism fit for the changing global environment
  • results in a substantive piece of theoretically-informed and empirical thesis work within one of the following fields:
    • Business and Financial Journalism (City University, London)
    • War and Conflict (Swansea University)
    • Media and Politics (University of Amsterdam)
    • Journalism and Media across Cultures (University of Hamburg)

After completing the 2-year programme students will be awarded either a dual or joint MA degree depending on their specialism university.
