Overview

This Communication for Development programme from Malmö University gives you the skills to work with media and communication in international developmental cooperation as well as in other areas.

This is a half-time study programme, combining courses on culture, communication and development and integrating them with practical field work. It explores the use of communication – both as a tool and as a way of expressing processes of social change – within the contexts of globalisation. The form of study is unique, a combination of live seminars and communication on the web. The seminars (2 days) are compulsory and consist of lectures, discussions and workshops. Overseas students who cannot physically attend can follow the seminars online. In between the seminars the students carry out assignments individually and in groups.

In the first year, students receive a comprehensive overview of globalisation and a systematic inventory of the entire field. In the second year, students follow specialised courses which ends with an independent project concentrating on one of the field’s sub-areas.

Future employment includes professional media companies, international organizations (governmental and non-governmental) and PhD-studies.
