About Media, Democracy and Human Rights at Linnaeus University

Target students: anyone interested in analysing media’s role in society and in influencing media development in line with democratic principles and human rights.

The programme’s focus on leadership, democracy, and human rights aims to prepare tomorrow’s researchers, social narrators, and decision-makers for contributing responsibly and insightfully to the development and regulation of the media landscape, based on democratic ideals and principles, and regardless of nationality and geographical considerations.

The programme focuses on an understanding of the increasingly important role and growing impact of the media as regards public service announcements, political communication, cultural expression, and social mobilisation. The students are provided with a theoretical understanding, analytical tools, and strategic competence, all of which enables them to not only understand, but to become active agents in, media development that affects democracy, human rights, and regulation of the media in an international context.

The programme is highly international, using case studies and course reading taken from a broad international context, and attracting students from all over the world.

The international degree awarded upon completion of the entire programme is Master of Arts (120 credits) in Media and Communications. The diploma and the degree certificate are issued in Swedish and English and are accompanied by a diploma supplement in English.
