A one-year Master's programme with 60 ECTS credits, Journalism Connected is a programme designed for newcomers to journalism. At the heart of Journalism Connected is the digital reporter, equipped for the globalizing world, who is capable of mastering interactive ICTs in story and content production.

It's for those who would like to adapt their competence in, for example, economics, politics, technology or design to journalism.

The proliferation of multimedia technologies has made digital and interactive skills necessary for today's journalist to become successful in the profession. Contemporary and future journalists need practical digital knowledge which is different from traditional print or broadcast production, exploiting the distinctive features of new interactive media, such as the ability to design, link, archive, and produce content for multiple platforms, and integrate readers/users through social media. However, core journalism skills are still essential, so students will learn to research, gather, evaluate and analyze information and sources, and to write with accuracy, brevity, and clarity in an ethically informed way. The programme has a global focus on journalism as well as on society. Journalism Connected courses are designed with an entrepreneurial media business format, where students are exposed to the concept of newsroom production. Students work individually and as part of a team in news research, design and production with interactive multiplatform applications for delivering and evaluation. They form teams which shepherd media stories through the production pipeline - from sketch and design to final implementation, testing, and maintenance. Important principles for Journalism Connected include creative learning through "trial and error", independence and responsibility. The language of instruction is English and applicants need to be proficient in that language to be eligible for admission. Specific entry requirements A Bachelor's degree of at least 180 credits in any field. In addition, knowledge of English corresponding to the course "English B" or course "English 6" from the Swedish Upper Secondary School is required.

Μaster of Arts in Digital Media, Communication and Journalism Message from the Program Director Since its establishment, in 1991, the School of Journalism and Mass Communications of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki offers full-time, four-year long BA degree programs both in Journalism and in Mass Communications. The creation of an English language Master’s program in the areas of Journalism and Communications, the first of its kind among Greek public Universities, is based on the School’s 25 year-long success in promoting learning through theory-building, cutting edge technical skills and professional training, and reflects its steadfast commitment to innovation, excellence, interdisciplinary education and international outlook.What makes our Master’s program relevant is the consistent integration of the students' study, skills and projects to the real world. Innovation and thoughtfulness have always been the only route for students, but I can’t think of a more critical time than now, in our highly complex, risk ridden, globalized and networked societies, for all thinking to become more methodical, reflexive and innovative. We look for students who are eager to take on more challenges, to learn more about themselves and about the world, to reach their full potential.
