A hands-on approach to the media world
The Danish School of Media and Journalism is a training and knowledge center for the media and communications sector with a focus on talent, innovation and lifelong learning. Our school dates back to 1943 and today we’re one of the leading Danish educational institution within fields such as journalism, communication, creative communication, graphic design, interactive design, media production and management, TV and media production, photo journalism and photographic communication. We train our students how to follow and accomplish the why in communication, and we achieve this through a “hands on”-approach combining theory with a lot of practice and group work, as well as great deal of collaboration with and engagement in the real world.
Talent – with an international perspective
We offer nine different Bachelor degrees within these fields, and our faculty boasts nearly 2,000 full-time
students with an international outlook as an integrated and prioritised part of our school. We have more than 80 partner universities, including around 20 strategic project partners from all over the world. More than one third of our Danish students spend part of their education abroad – at other universities or in internships – and every semester we welcome students from across the globe. After a semester at our school, you’ll not only have forged relationships with native Danes, but students and teachers from all over the world.
We aim to be a lifelong learning partner with the Danish media industry: every semester more than 1,300 course participants and students attend more than 100 training courses – ranging from writing to web design and from strategy to practice.
We collaborate with the Danish media and communication sector to generate fresh knowledge and develop the media arena. This is done through research, analysis and development projects, as well as consultancy and advisory work. What we discover doesn’t just benefit our partners and the industry, but our students as well. We have been conducting international projects for over 25 years, including Free Media projects with the support of the Danish Foreign Ministry and UNESCO, and projects supported by the EU Erasmus Mundus and EU-ICI-ECP programmes.
The Danish School of Media and Journalism has two campuses – one in Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, and one in Aarhus, Denmark’s second largest city.
