Master of Arts in Journalism

Training journalists has a long tradition at LMU. In the course of their studies, our journalism students, who have a range of disciplinary backgrounds, get a mix of social science research and practical courses in journalism. After two years, students are ready for a successful career in journalism. The program is carried out by IfKW in collaboration with the Deutsche Journalistenschule (DJS). DJS is one of Germany’s leading institutions in the area of journalism education.

The content of the courses at LMU encompasses theoretical and empirical expertise in the field of communication studies. In addition, the courses taken at DJS are focused on applicable skills for journalists in a variety of media. Students also go through various internships, which help them develop a sense of how the profession works and build a professional network.
