Erasmus Mundus Masters: Journalism, Media and Globalisation
The Danish Agency for International Education vil represent this Erasmus Mundus programme at the Fairs in Seattle ( 18/10), Denver(20/10), SF(24/10) og LA( 26/10).
Erasmus Mundus Journalism degree scheme brings together five leading European journalism and media teaching and research institutions, combining the best academic research and teaching from a variety of different national educational cultures. The program aims to prepare students for the challenge of working in the new global information society. Globalisation is penetrating cultural and social borders around the world and simultaneously reinvigorating smaller regions and feelings of local identity. Political and social power is taking on new dimensions. Cultural awareness is growing. Journalism is at the centre of these changes.
Politically, states in Europe are coming together and falling apart at the same time. Journalists need new tools to understand and to interpret the processes of integration and disintegration.
Economically, a global world market is creating growth and havoc at the same time. Journalists need tools to be able to describe it in clear language.
Socially, people are getting connected in new ways through modern technologies. Journalism is the crucial field in a network society.
Culturally, there is increasing onus on the media and journalism to explain differences and similarities between peoples and societies.
The focus of Mundus Journalism is to give participants the intellectual tools for a new and better understanding of reporting global change.
EU have given this programme the Erasmus Mundus label and support the programme with 15 scholarhsips of 45.000 Euro for non-EU and EU students.
