  • Overzicht

The programme explores the practice and performance of journalism and the media in the context of an environment shaped by globalisation, modernisation, commercialisation & professional developments.

The programme offers students a unique experience of studying in two European countries. Students are spending the first year in Aarhus, Denmark, and then transfer to another university to specialise in one of four distinct areas of journalism:
* Media and politics (University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands)
* War and conflict (University of Swansea, UK)
* Business and finance (City University London, UK)
* Journalism and media across cultures (University of Hamburg, Germany).

There are additional opportunities for an exchange at Berkeley, Sidney or Santiago de Chile.

This Master's programme is not intended to train students to become journalists. Rather, it is aimed at those already working as professional journalists who wish to further develop their analytical skills and learn more about issues related to globalisation and journalism.

job perspective

Graduates will have excellent research and writing skills, and the confidence and knowledge necessary to report on topics relevant to the global information society in a specifically European context.

Although maintaining high journalistic standards is important to the programme, the focus is on reflection. This enables the participants to better understand their roles as journalists and to be aware of what leeway exists in terms of maintaining high journalistic standards.


The programme aims to prepare students for the challenge of working in the new global information society by giving participants the intellectual tools for a new and better understanding of reporting global challenges. The focus of this programme is not on practical journalism training, but with critical reflection and scientific research. Participants train to reflect on their own role as journalist in society, the conditions of journalistic production and the impact of media on audiences.
