School of Journalism and Mass Communications ΜΑ in Digital Media, Communication and Journalism
Since its establishment, in 1991, the School of Journalism and Mass Communications of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki offers full-time, four-year long BA degree programs both in Journalism and in Mass Communications. The creation of an English language Master’s program in the areas of Journalism and Communications, the first of its kind among Greek public Universities, is based on the School’s 25 year-long success in promoting learning through theory-building, cutting edge technical skills and professional training, and reflects its steadfast commitment to innovation, excellence, interdisciplinary education and international outlook.What makes our Master’s program relevant is the consistent integration of the students' study, skills and projects to the real world. Innovation and thoughtfulness have always been the only route for students, but I can’t think of a more critical time than now, in our highly complex, risk ridden, globalized and networked societies, for all thinking to become more methodical, reflexive and innovative.
We look for students who are eager to take on more challenges, to learn more about themselves and about the world, to reach their full potential. Our faculty, all active scholars and researchers, are committed to helping students succeed in their pursuits. Together we work to make each student’s experience at Aristotle University a rich and fulfilling one that broadens his or hers intellectual and professional horizons.
For the academic year 2019/20 tuition fees are set at € 3.000. These are paid directly to the bank account of the Research Committee of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, (download) in three instalments (first two € 1.200 and third € 600), at the beginning of each semester. In the event that students and nationality groups have exceptional circumstances a different payment plan can be arranged, after special agreement with the Secretariat. Scholarships and financial aid The School of Journalism and Mass Communication awards up to a total of 3 scholarships annually to candidates who have already been given an unconditional offer and can provide evidence of genuine financial need. In addition, every academic year 1 scholarship is awarded to the student that has the top overall grades, upon the completion of the 1st study semester. This scholarship takes the form of a fee-waiver for the remainder of his/her studies, i.e. are equivalent to the amount of € 2.000. In the event that the student awarded the scholarship has paid the tuition fees in advance, a refund of the aforementioned amount is received. Applicants are strongly advised to seek information about the educational agreements that exist between their country of origin and Greece since these typically include the award of grants for study in Greek Universities. Another option for financial support for your Master Studies in our School is the Erasmus+ Master Loans which is being established in cooperation with the European Investment Fund (Part of the EIB Group) offered to higher education students from any Erasmus+ program countries.
