Overview

Just yesterday, international journalism was a 'members-only club'. But digital technologies and globalization processes have changed the landscape for good: now, the whole world can be your audience. Media companies are also changing their requirements for international journalists. Today, they're looking for specialists who are both knowledgeable in the field of international relations, as well as capable of solving complex problems in the world of new media: from creating material, publishing it independently, and promoting it; to designing and running multimedia projects.

International Journalism in the World of New Media is a two-year master's degree program geared toward training professionals in the fields of journalism and international relations.

The program gives students critical journalistic skills and introduces key trends in the development of global media.
