Master and one year master degree in media & communication studies

A master is for you who studied media and communication studies on bachelor level and want to deepen your knowledge, or who majored in another subject but want to broaden your perspectives. The courses you may choose among offers either qualified knowledge on how to plan, review and interpret information or broader perspectives on media´s role in the society.

At JMG we do not have a masterprogram in media and communication studies but you can compose your own course package that will lead to a master or a one year master degree. To get a master degree you need to have a bachelor degree, where at least one semester (30 hec) must be in media and communication studies.

One year master (60 hec)

For a one year master you need:

  • 45 hec within the subject (MK2100 Advanced Analyses, methodology course SF2321 or 2322 plus a thesis of 15 hec).
  • 15 elective hec – on advanced or bachelor level.

Master (120 hec)

For a master you need:

  • 60 hec within the subject (MK2100 Advanced Analyses, methodology course SF2321 or 2322 plus a thesis of 30 hec).
  • 30 hec on advanced level – elective courses
  • 30 hec elective courses – on advanced or bachelor level.

Upgrade your one year master to a master

If you already have a one year master (finished after 2007) and you want to upgrade to a master you can add one more one year master, see below in the suggested study programme. If you have a one year master finished before 2007, please contact us for study guidance.
