About this program

MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation (Erasmus Mundus)

The Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Journalism, Media and Globalisation offers a unique educational experience. Students on the programme study and live in at least two European countries. They engage in lively and insightful discussions with classmates from around the world in an interdisciplinary and intercultural environment that is both international and ambitious.

The MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation rests on a collaboration between the social sciences and the humanities and between theoretical and practice-oriented approaches. The fruit of this cross- disciplinary approach is a joint understanding that cuts across academic disciplines, journalistic genres, and geographical and cultural settings.

The degree has been a part of the Erasmus Mundus study programme since 2005 and has continually evolved in order to best prepare students for the global changes that increasingly challenge the traditional boundaries between media, politics, technology, and culture.

Learn at Leading Institutions

Students spend their first year jointly between Aarhus University – taught by faculty from the Department of Political Science and the Department of Information and Media Studies – and the highly respected Danish School of Media and Journalism. In year two, the programme splits into three specialisations offered by some of Europe’s leading universities.

This allows students to customise their studies in the following areas:

  • Politics and Communication at the University of Amsterdam, the Netherlands
  • Totalitarianism and Transition at Charles University, Prague, Czech Republic
  • Business & Innovation at City, University of London in the United Kingdom
