Visions and aims

We wish to contribute to enhance the quality, knowledge level, and the diversity of opinions in the public discourse. The Faculty of Media and Journalism sees its mission in line with fundamental democratic ideals and values. The programs and courses offered through the faculty will prepare students for professional careers in media with a focus on information and public enlightenment, societal criticism and the watch-dog functions of free societies. Our goals are to bring attention to unacceptable situations and practices in society through the active use of the freedom of speech. These values are reflected both in the core curriculum, syllabus, teaching methods, and through faculty member’s active participation in today’s media-political debate.
