DESCRIPTION - ACCEPTED STUDENTS CATEGORIES: The English-taught Master of Arts (MA) in Digital Media, Communication and Journalism is the first of its kind among Greek public Universities, reflecting our School’s steadfast commitment to innovation, excellence and international outlook.
The program adopts an interdisciplinary perspective to the key forms and practices of communication and journalism, and is addressed to graduates of various academic backgrounds, as well as to already employed professionals, media practitioners and researchers, who wish to upgrade their knowledge and skills in response to the changes in contemporary media. The completion of the program awards participants a Master’s degree in one of the following three specialties:
European Journalism focuses on the role of news media and journalism in the emergence of a European public sphere. Combining a cross-national comparative approach to European journalistic and news cultures with a hands-on coverage of current European issues, the pathway explores the complexities and challenges regarding the reporting on Europe and the European Union.
Risk Communication & Crisis Journalism focuses on the ways media and public, private or nongovernmental organizations communicate about present, emerging, and evolving risks by combining the methodical engagement with the rich theoretical and case study research literature, and a hands-on coverage of current crises and emergencies.
Digital Media, Culture & Communication focuses on the new nexus between media, culture and society forged in the digital age by addressing the impact and implications of the digital transformation, with particular emphasis on the fields of media/cultural industries, connective media and civil society.
