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.

Students of the 2-year programme write two theses (15 credits each).
