Program Description

Master in International Communication

Jönköping University

Master in International Communication

Master of Arts (60 credits) with a major in Media and Communications

International Communication is a programme designed for students who are interested in the role of communication in intercultural and global contexts.

The programme focuses on and provides both theoretical and practical skills in communication, working in an intercultural context. During the year, students will participate in courses focusing on cultural aspects of communication (both contemporary and historical) media’s role in communication and identities, communication levels and processes within intercultural organizations, political communication, media literacy, and ethnographic media studies.

Since the programme is offered in Sweden, students will be able to experience the Scandinavian cultural landscape. This perspective is also influenced by news media as well as entertainment media, and therefore, the programme also offers the opportunity for students to visit media companies and organizations as part of the course work.


Career prospects

Some examples of job positions that might be of interest after graduation are communication experts in companies with global or intercultural focus and strategy.
