Students are trained to be competent and multi-skilled specialists in print and new media journalism. Professional standard techniques and classroom theory are combined to transfer skills in news-writing and gathering for print and web media, digital tools and photography, video production, broadcasting and visual culture. Students swiftly apply these skills to real-world exercises in various forms of journalism, reporting and composition.

Additionally, AAU’s School of Journalism, Media and Visual Arts pays significant attention to preparing its students with an informed, developed and responsible understanding of political, economic and social issues and systems, both regionally and internationally.

Students are thus able to reflect in their work an understanding of the crucial relationship between news media and democratic politics.
AAU’s Journalism graduates are smarter creators and consumers of information across multiple platforms of mass communications.
