The Erasmus Mundus Master’s in Journalism, Media and Globalisation builds on the diverse journalistic experience of its students. It offers a venue for the analysis, interpretation, and understanding of the global changes that are increasingly challenging the traditional boundaries between media, politics, technology, and culture. 

Students engage in lively and insightful discussions with classmates from around the world, sharing their unique experiences in journalism and communication-related fields.

Career Opportunities    

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.

About the Degree

The programme has been granted the EU’s Erasmus Mundus label. 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 four specialisms, offered by some of Europe’s leading universities. 

This allows students to customise their studies in the following areas: 
  • Media and Politics at the University of Amsterdam in the Netherlands 
  • Business and Finance Journalism at City University in London, UK 
  • Journalism and Media Across Cultures at the University of Hamburg, Germany
  • War and Conflict at the University of Swansea, Wales 

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.

The programme takes an academic and theoretical approach to journalism. Students are awarded a joint degree from Aarhus University and one of the European partner universities. In addition to the specialism year offered in year two, in the second semester of year one, students can also apply to complete 20 ECTS at an overseas partner university – choosing either the University of California at Berkeley, USA or Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Chile or University of Technology Sydney, Australia.

The Mundus Journalism Consortium offers a limited number of Erasmus Mundus student scholarships, funded by the EU, for students admitted to the Mundus Journalism Masters course in 2019.
