The Erasmus Mundus Journalism, Media and Globalisation (EMJ) programme at Charles University  focuses on analytical skills needed to identify and analyse cultural, political, and technological challenges to and opportunities for journalism across the globe. It combines theoretical, methodological and practical perspectives. Students can choose the specialisation of their study for the second year. 

The Prague's programme offers the Totalitarianism & Transition Specialisation. This specialisation gives students a solid understanding of the contemporary history of post-totalitarian countries. Students work with key issues facing journalism in light of ongoing political, market related and technological transformations. Obtained theoretical knowledge becomes the point of departure for the practical courses in audio, video and multimedia journalism production. It makes a perfect point of departure for future employment, e.g. in foreign correspondence.


Our alumni are entering successful and interesting jobs worldwide with many at the top of their profession. Many paths are open to them, and they might want to choose different directions at different times in their life. We have divided Mundus Journalism's career paths into three overall directions, such as practical journalism, academic career in journalism and media or NGO's, start-ups and all areas of international work.
