The Centre for Journalism stands for a new and, in Denmark, unique approach to both teaching and research in journalism through its organizational attachment to the Department of Political Science and Public Management and the Faculty of Business and Social Sciences at the University of Southern Denmark. Media research has been done in Denmark for several decades, primarily by researchers from the humanities. Journalism research is a more recent phenomenon, programmes in journalism having been taught only outside the university system until recently.
Close to 30 people are employed at the centre, and app. 600 students (part- and full-time) are enrolled on our various programmes, which comprise bachelor's, master's and professional master's programmes.
The Journalism Programmes: Knowledge, multimediality and creativity
Our programmes combine theory and practice. The degree programmes include all forms of media, providing you with insight into an array of different subject areas. As a student, you will learn journalistic craftsmanship in radio, TV, written media and the Internet. At the same time, this practical craftsmanship is combined with a number of academic subjects, including political science, history and media sociology. In this manner, SDU journalism students produce and reflect at the same time!
