Two-year MA in Journalism, Media and Globalisation
The Erasmus Mundus Journalism programme is a master's degree that offers a unique educational experience with students studying and living in at least two European countries. The first year of the degree is spent in Denmark with the entire cohort. The second year sees students split into smaller groups that move to universities in either Swansea, London, Amsterdam or Hamburg to specialise in one of four distinct areas of journalism: War and Conflict, Business and Finance, Media and Politics, or Journalism and Media Across Cultures.
Students in the Mundus Journalism programme gain an outstanding professional network for life, working with peers from all over the world in an interdisciplinary and intercultural environment that is both international and ambitious. You will study at some of Europe’s leading universities where top researchers in media, political studies and journalism are responsible for the teaching. This gives the opportunity to customise your talent to an international level.
Students learn to combine academic, theoretical knowledge with journalistic skills, and to analyse, interpret and generate knowledge about the global changes that increasingly challenge traditional boundaries.
Graduates of the Mundus Journalism programme go on to achieve success in a diverse range of careers. Many continue with PhD programs, or build successful careers at some of the world's top media organisations - including London's Bloomberg, Beijing's Dow Jones, Nairobi's Radio Africa Group and New York's Al Jazeera offices.
Other alumni choose to take their Master's qualification and use it in a related field. Our graduates have landed jobs in public relations and communications for many intergovernmental organisations, at journalism and technology start ups, and at global non-profit companies.
The first year of studies
The first year is spent in Denmark at Aarhus University and the Danish School of Media and Journalism, and is a progression through knowledge and methodologies related to Globalisation, Political Science, Media Studies and Journalism. Around nine students get the opportunity to study the second semester at either University of California Berkeley, University of Technology Sydney or Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile.
The second year of studies
For the second year of studies, each student chooses a specialisation - a specific study profile - that suit his/her overall interests, competence profile and future career plans. This specialisation is chosen when applying for admission to the Mundus Journalism programme.
In order to be admitted to the Erasmus Mundus Journalism Programme, applicants are required to fulfill the requirements listed in the boxes below.
As we receive more than 500 applications each year and as only 80-90 applicants are admitted, all applications are also evaluated in relation to specific selection criteria.
The Consortium aims to admit highly qualified students from the widest possible range of countries and with an equal representation of both genders if possible.
Each year we receive around 500 applications and admit 80-90 students. As we have 20 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the 2018-20 programme we expect that 25% will be offered admission as scholarship students, while 75% will be offered admission as self-funded students. Only applicants being superior in all categories can expect to be offered admission as scholarship students.
The admission process for students is highly selective and is based upon a variety of factors to ensure that the selection is as objective and fair as possible. During the selection process, all applications are read by academics from Aarhus University and the first priority specialisation university.
To ensure that the best candidates are admitted, the consortium has decided to give priority to academic merit; candidates will only be admitted if they have an above-average Bachelor’s degree (a minimum of an above-average class mark/GPA is expected).
Tuition & Scholarships
Due to the Erasmus Mundus legislation the tuition fee for the whole two-year Mundus Journalism Masters programme is very competitive compared to other inter(national) MA-programmes. The tuition fee is €9.000/€18.000 for the whole two-year programme for EU/non-EU nationals respectively.
As the Mundus Journalism programme is selected by the EU to receive Mundus scholarships (€34.000/€47.000) for EU/non-EU nationals respectively***), the Mundus Journalism Consortium is able to offer a number of scholarships for the programmes running in 2017-2020. All Mundus Journalism students, who do not receive an Erasmus Mundus scholarship, can apply for an Erasmus+ stipend for the second year of the Mundus Journalism studies.
Each year we receive around 500 applications and admit 80-90 students. As we have 20 Erasmus Mundus scholarships for the 2018-20 programme we expect that 25% will be offered admission as scholarship students, while 75% will be offered admission as self-funded students. Only applicants being superior in all categories can expect to be offered admission as scholarship students. Students who already have a 2-year MA-degree cannot be granted a Mundus scholarship.
