International joint Master in Photojournalism in Scandinavia

We’re extremely proud and happy to announce that we have received funding from Nordplus, supported by the Nordic Council of Ministers to develop and launch a new international master in photojournalism in 2020.

The new international master in photojournalism will build on top of the already existing BA and international programs, which are at the schools on Sundsvall, Oslo and Aarhus.

The new master education will be shared between three renowned higher-level photojournalism educations in Oslo, Norway; Sundsvall, Sweden and Aarhus, Denmark.

To benefit from the institutions long experience of teaching photojournalism and to build a modern Master program, the syllabus will be shared between the institutions during the two-year of master courses, thus creating a unique educational experience for both Nordic and international students of the program.


The goal of the Master is to provide students the necessary professional abilities in order for them to develop new visual knowledge and language for the new media industry.

The joint Master will have both theoretical as well as professional courses so students will get the tools to reflect and understand the modern media industry, their roles as photojournalists as well as to further develop their visual projects.
