About the course
In an age when "everybody" can be a journalist, deep knowledge and good communication skills are vital. If you have a Bachelor's degree you are eligible for our one-year Journalism course. In your studies, you will combine the knowledge from your major subject with journalistic skills as well as academic reflection on the constraints and possibilities of journalism.
The course stretches over two semesters (one year), and the modules are tightly connected, offering basic knowledge of, and skills in, journalism. It also offers deeper studies into the practical work of feature reporting via an independent project. The course prepares you for journalistic practice in different forms of media, as well as a variety of media organisations.
The first semester offers an introduction to journalism. You work with news, features, columns and web journalism, and an exploration into an independent style of expression. Academic analyses of journalism are taught in addition to issues of globalisation, digitalisation, democracy and gender. You also do field work as a reporter, and to make the assignments relevant and realistic this is done in cooperation with local media organisations. The second semester gives insight into the practice of, and research on, law and ethics for journalists. During a six-week-long internship at a media organisation, you gain further experience in journalistic work and the parameters of the labour market for journalists.
The final part of the course is an independent feature piece. You produce a qualified feature piece, investigative or literary, and analyse the project processes and results, using an academic approach.
