About the programme

The programme is project-based, and the goal is to have our students working as members of one of our research groups, carrying out research, and being supervised by the researcher in charge of the research group. From day one, you will start an individual project resulting in your master’s thesis after two years. Every second year, a few students are admitted after individual consideration. If you have shown excellent results in your Bachelor studies and are motivated to specialize in your field, you might be one of the students we seek.

Media and Communication Science
The Master by Research programme in Media and Communication Science collaborates closely with the research centre Demicom. At Demicom we research democracy and communication in the digital community. The research is interdisciplinary, including research groups and projects that integrate and deal with media development, organizational- and strategic communication, political communication, and journalism. The Master by Research programme consists of group and individual courses and includes many research-related activities.
