About Media and Journalism Studies

About Media studies

The Media Studies Programme is concerned with the analysis of Danish and international media. Areas of focus include political and institutional perspectives, textual forms of expression, production conditions, media consumption, media history and media theory.  The field of media studies includes traditional mass media, film and the new digital media, as well as the interplay between these forms. The Media Studies Programme at Aarhus University was established in 1986. Since its inception, the programme has emphasised empirical approaches, both in research and learning contexts.

The research environment

The programme’s researchers apply a diverse range of theoretical and methodological approaches to the consumption, politics and production of media. In a variety of research projects, they have contributed to the development of the field of media studies, through the investigation of the media’s function, organisation and forms of expression in both contemporary and historical cultural and social contexts, both nationally and internationally.

The Media Studies Programme has a long tradition of collaboration with key players on the Danish and international media market through specific research projects, involvement of external partners in teaching, and in more general knowledge exchange and outreach activities.  In recent years our researchers have worked with DR and TV2 (Danish TV stations), the Danish Film Institute, Egmont, Bonnier Publications, the Danish Producers' Association , Nordisk Film, Metronome, BLU and Nordjyske Medier.

About Journalism

Journalism is a relatively new, independent programme at Arts with close connections to different fields in the humanities and social sciences. The programme focuses on journalism's social significance and its various forms (e.g. genres) and media-related conditions. Teaching, research and knowledge-sharing in this subject take place in close cooperation with programmes in media studies and political science, the Danish School of Journalism and a number of commercial media enterprises.

The research environment

In addition to consistent focus on the importance of journalism in democratic processes, research on journalism also deals with the wider economic, social and cultural processes involved in the production, distribution and consumption of different kinds of journalistic content. One specific focus area is the changes occurring as a result of the dissemination of digital technologies.
