About Media and Journalism Studies

The Department of Media and Journalism Studies is one of nine departments within the School of Communication and Culture at the Faculty of Arts. Eight research centers focus the department’s research expertise to investigate the accelerating developments in media and journalism and to address the ensuing questions and key issues facing society and the human condition. A core field of interest is the development and digital evolution of mass media and new digital media. The department’s seven degree and supplementary programmes on BA, MA and PhD level offer a research-based education which examines content, organization, functioning and uses of media and journalism, taking current and historical perspectives within national and international contexts.
