    Programme Description

    The degree scheme brings together five leading European institutions in the journalism and media education, combining the best academic research and teaching from the different national educational cultures. The program aims to prepare students for the challenge of working in the new global information society. Globalisation is penetrating cultural and social borders around the world and simultaneously reinvigorating smaller regions and feelings of local identity. Political and social power is taking on new dimensions. Cultural awareness is growing.

    Journalism is at the centre of these changes.

    • Politically, states in Europe are coming together and falling apart at the same time. Journalists need new tools to understand and to interpret the processes of integration and disintegration.
    • Economically, a global world market is creating growth and havoc at the same time. Journalists need tools to be able to describe it in clear language.
    • Socially, people are getting connected in new ways through modern technologies. Journalism is the crucial field in a network society.
    • Culturally, there is increasing onus on the media and journalism to explain differences and similarities between peoples and societies.

    The focus of the Erasmus Mundus Masters Journalism and Media is to give participants the intellectual tools for a new and better understanding of reporting global change.

    The Media & Communication Institute of the UvA is one of the providers of the two-year master´s programme in Journalism and Media within Globalisation: The European Perspective. In doing so the institute cooperates with the University of Aarhus / Danish School of Journalism, the University of Wales (Swansea), City University (London) and the University of Hamburg.
