Theoretical Journalism Studies courses at University of Groningen enable students to reflect on the nature of journalism as a profession and stimulate critical thinking about the future of news reporting.
You will study how journalism culture and developments in globalization, citizenship, politics and digital journalism interrelate, while learning how to apply appropriate research methods and theories in empirical academic research focused on understanding the field of journalism.
- The English-taught Master's track offers an excellent preparation for the job market. Most alumni work in journalism, self-employed or on a contract with a news organization.
- Others work in communication and public relations, mostly for non-profit or (semi) government organizations. Jobs in policy development and management, education and academic research are quite common as well.
