Global changes in technology, politics and society place the journalistic profession in a central position with regard to understanding and mediating the global age. Around the world there is a greater need than ever for highly qualified journalists to analyse, interpret and create knowledge of the global changes that present an ever-increasing challenge to traditional thought-patterns. The Journalism, Media and Globalisation programme is a European Erasmus Mundus Master’s degree programme directed at students who wish to acquire the right intellectual tools for practising journalism and engaging with journalism scholarship in a globalised world.
