The Mundus Journalism Master's is a two-year, truly transnational degree providing a solid foundation for analysing and reporting global changes. It aims to produce theoretically grounded and highly reflexive journalism candidates with transnational, global views on the intersection of journalism, media and globalisation.
Behind the degree stands a tightly integrated and experienced consortium of five European and three non-European universities. With students studying at up to four different universities during the programme, the depth of learning on offer is equalled by the breadth of different teaching styles and methods that participants have access to during their studies.
