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

As an Erasmus Mundus student, you can expect a cultural experience both inside the classroom and out. The programme brings together students from all around the world to join a tight-knit community of inspired and talented young professionals in Aarhus.
Students are also offered a number of extra-curricular activities in which they can try out their theoretical skills in practice. In Aarhus, Erasmus Mundus students have set up two media platforms - Jutland Station, an online magazine, and Planet Mundus, a radio outlet covering everything from politics to sport in Aarhus from an international perspective. Similar initiatives are found at the partner universities.
Graduates of the MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation have found jobs in international journalism, as editors or reporters at news institutions around the world, and in communication at international companies and organisations. After studying with an international group of young journalists and communications professionals, students can expect to leave the programme with an extensive network of professional contacts and friends around the world.
Graduates are eligible to apply for PhD programmes at Aarhus University and elsewhere.
Students are awarded a joint degree from Aarhus University and from one of the European specialisation universities. In addition, students can apply to complete 30 ECTS at a partner university in the second semester of year one - choosing between the University of California Berkeley, California, Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile, the University of Technology Sydney, Australia, Fudan University Shanghai, the University of Cape Town, South Africa, or the University of Hamburg, Germany, Lebanese American University in Lebanon City, University of London in United Kingdom, Swansea University in Wales, United Kingdom. Alternatively, students can now also choose to replace their elective in the second semester in year one with an approved internship.
