  • Objectives
    The focus of the Erasmus Mundus Global Journalism Master's is to give participants the intellectual tools for a new and better understanding of reporting globalisation and its challenges. The information process is undergoing a fundamental transformation. Developments in technology, politics and society are increasingly putting journalism and the media industries at the centre of people’s attempts to make sense of what is happening in the world around them. The Erasmus Mundus Global Journalism Master's explores the practice and performance of journalism and the media in the context of a new environment brought about by globalisation, modernisation, commercialisation and professional developments. It seeks to produce alumni who will shape the future of global journalism. The program 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 and simultaneously reinvigorating smaller regions and feelings of local identity. Political and social power is taking on new dimensions. Cultural awareness and the risk of misunderstandings are growing. Journalism is at the centre of these changes. This degree is aimed at understanding these changes, researching them and providing the foundation for working globally.
