The programme aims to prepare students for the challenge of working in the new global information society. Globalisation is penetrating cultural and social borders around the world while simultaneously reinvigorating smaller regions and feelings of local identity. The focus of the Erasmus Mundus Master's in Journalism and Media is to provide participants with the intellectual tools needed for a new and better understanding of these processes and for reporting the global challenge.

The study programme in Hamburg introduces students to the basic concepts and issues in the study of journalism. It aims at a critical understanding of the characteristics and problems of media in society. It also provides a survey of selected media systems throughout the world. An overview of the theories and methods of comparative research will be provided. Furthermore, the interrelation between journalism and the development of European public spheres is examined. Concentrating on recent journalistic approaches towards European public spheres, the course aims at providing students with an informed understanding of what is required to cover European activities at a professional level.

By studying in three European countries, the programme offers a unique educational experience. Upon completion of the programme, a typical student will have knowledge and understanding of:

  • the broad perspectives and background information necessary to understand and report on a changing Europe, including the economic and political context of globalisation;
  • fundamental concepts, methods and theories relevant to the study of global journalism;
  • how to formulate and study research questions about media;
  • the role of journalists in democratic societies;
  • the interplay between political institutions and journalism.

Furthermore, students will be able to plan, conduct and communicate original research in journalism studies and employ a systematic approach to gathering, analysing and communicating knowledge while managing resources and time.
