Program Description

MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation (Erasmus Mundus)

Aarhus University


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.


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
  • Comparative and Transcultural Approaches 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.

For those who want to participate in student media, Jutland Station provides excellent practical experience. You will have an opportunity to cover everything from politics to culture to sports in Aarhus from an international perspective.


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 useful contacts and friends around the world.

Graduates are eligible to apply for PhD programmes at Aarhus University and elsewhere.

“I cannot think of any other study programme that is more international and diverse than the Erasmus Mundus programme. Class sessions are not just a daily routine you commit to, but more of a golden opportunity to connect with an array of backgrounds. You simply travel the world in your classroom. My professional background involves global advocacy and media relations, so the programme has been a perfect match in strengthening my skills and knowledge as a global advocate and media practitioner.”
