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.
