10 Master Scholarship Journalism


Global Communication and International Journalism – Double Degree Master’s Program

Version7

Saint Petersburg State University (SPbU)-Freie Universität Berlin (FU)

The Master’s Program Global Communication and International Journalism is conducted by the Institute for Media and Communication Studies, FU Berlin, and the School of Journalism and Mass Communications, SPbU. It attracts graduates with a BA level or higher academic degree or a Specialist university degree in social sciences as well as humanities. The program provides students with the analytical, methodological and practical competencies necessary for understanding and researching global communication and international journalism developments.

The graduates of the double degree program are well prepared for a career in journalism as well as an academic career in media research both in universities and in the private sector. They have the necessary competencies to engage in editorial boards or management of organizations and various sectors of global mass media. They are ready to work in media consultancy, political education and intercultural communication.

Courses are taught in English; an academic degree from both universities is provided upon graduation. Students attend courses in St. Petersburg and in Berlin.

Major Aims and Topics

Students will get a double-competency qualification based on academic studies and practical training. They are to acquire accurate and deep understanding of communication theory and develop comprehensive knowledge of important research in the field of international media and communication. They must further learn to develop their own research questions in the context of existing theories and relevant research areas. Special significance is attributed to international comparative theoretical and empirical approaches that consider structural changes in media and society: following this perspective, the development of global media and communication processes is understood as crossing national borders.

Professional and independent work on an international level is one of the major goals of the program. Students analyze and develop a thorough understanding of new media technological developments and the impacts and obstacles of the digitalization of mediated communication. They critically assess the importance of innovation and globalization in mass media from political, economic, cultural, legal and ethical perspectives.
