The master’s program in Global Communication and International Journalism attracts graduates with a BA level or higher academic degree in social sciences as well as humanities. The application and admissions processes will be organized in Saint Petersburg. Applications will be accepted until July 10, 2014.
Students in this master’s degree program will receive an academic education that is also geared toward real-world practice. They will acquire a deep understanding of communication theories and develop comprehensive knowledge in the field of international media and communication. Students will also learn to formulate their own research questions in the context of existing theories and fields of research. One particular area of focus within the program is international comparative theories and empirical approaches for considering structural changes in the media and society.
One of the program’s primary goals is to enable students to work professionally and independently at the international level. Students will analyze new technological developments in the media sector and their influence as well as the problems associated with the digitization of media communication. The goal is for students to develop critical judgment from various perspectives (political, economic, cultural, ethnic). The program aims to prepare students for a career in journalism or academia or to work in communication studies and media consulting, political and civic education, or intercultural communication.
This program is receiving support from the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD).
