Language of training:
The course lasts 3 academic years. It is targeted at students holding a secondary school diploma who would like to pursue a career in journalism with a view at specialising in one of the following fields: science, health and society, economics, culture, politics or sports. Except standard journalistic competencies it aims at training students to better communicate their chosen specialisation to the general public.
The objective of the programme is to provide students with overall journalistic skills with a specific focus on their chosen field of specialisation. The study programme consists of two main blocks, both including compulsory and optional courses. The first block offers a set of courses providing students with basic knowledge in the fields essential for journalism whereas the second focuses on specialised professional skills. Students choose a specialisation in one of the following types of media:
TV/radio/DTP/press/photo/internet and in one of the following fields: science, economy, culture, politics, sport or health and social issues. According to their choice they follow selected courses within both blocks. The core subjects offered within the science specialisation include basic courses on natural sciences, science dissemination, and general environmental problems. Students also take part in practical trainings, workshops and work on individual projects. The course ends with a Bachelor thesis and an oral exam in basic communication and media related subjects as well as theory of journalism. Moreover, the oral exam also targets the chosen specialisation in both the field and the media type.
The course runs from September to June.
