About Media and Journalism Studies

The Department of Media Studies and Journalism deals with both Danish and international media relations with an analytical focus on, for example, political and institutional perspectives, textual forms of expression and production conditions. Traditional mass media and new digital forms of expression are a selection of subject fields that the department's researchers and students deal with on a daily basis.
