The Media and Communication programme from Roskilde University 

teaches you how to anticipate the possibilities and challenges around people’s mediated engagement and what this means for different organisations and institutions. And it provides you with the professional awareness needed to evaluate the role of media within communication and plan accordingly.

Mastering these crucial understandings of the impacts associated with the digitalisation of contemporary societies enables you to manage and plan for the local conditions and global power dynamics that influence mediated communication practices. These competencies can be applied across different national and cultural contexts, providing a critical perspective on global developments in media technology, datafication, and platform societies. The programme enables you to hone these competences in two crucial areas: corporate and global communication.


The master's programme qualifies you for jobs that demand an ability to understand the impact of digitalisation and datafication on communication. Upon graduation, you will be able to plan, implement, analyse, and manage mediated communication efforts in a variety of organisations. Employers range from start-ups and SMEs to governmental institutions, NGOs, and international corporations.
