The Journalism, Media and Globalisation programme from University of Hamburg uniquely combines journalism with media studies and the social sciences. 


 During the Journalism, Media and Globalisation programme from University of Hamburg , students from around the globe have the opportunity to pursue their studies at two European universities. The program focuses mainly on the theories of business, war, and crisis journalism, taking into account the various types of journalism as well as the key problems encountered by journalists reporting on globalization issues. The first year also comprises practical components. The program is offered in cooperation with universities in London, Aarhus, Amsterdam, and Swansea, as well as the Danish School of Media and Journalism. Students learn as part of an international group, develop their intercultural and linguistic skills, and obtain a qualification from both institutions. Some students also have the opportunity to study at a non-EU partner university during the second semester (USA, Australia, Chile).
