The Sustainable Communication programme offered by Jönköping University is a master’s programme where you will study the relationship between media and communication and the environmental, social and economic dimensions of sustainability. The programme is offered in close cooperation with the research environment Sustainable Communication at Jönköping University, which has published extensively in the areas of environmental communication, global journalism, transmedia storytelling, and communication for development.
SusCom is offered as a 1-year (60 credits) and a 2-year (120 credits) programme. The 2-year programme is an extension of the 1-year programme, which means that students of both programmes study together during their first year. A mandatory work placement of five weeks is offered during the first year. Students of the 1-year programme write one thesis (15 credits). Students of the 2-year programme write two theses (15 credits each).
After graduating, students may be interested in working for organisations that work with communication and sustainability. Those who have completed the 2-year programme also have the opportunity to study further at doctoral level.
