Excellent research assessments and growing student numbers enable the Department of Media Studies and Journalism of the University of Groningen to hire an assistant professor in Journalism Studies.

Our BA and MA programmes rank first among all Media Studies programmes in the Netherlands in the national student survey. The MA programmes in Journalism focus on high quality reporting in a cross-media setting with a strong focus on digital skills and innovation, and combine academic reflection with academic skills. The department admits 30 Dutch and 30 international MA students on a yearly basis after a rigorous selection procedure. The minor programme in Journalism addresses a range of developments in the field of journalism studies, providing courses to students from a range of disciplines within the university.
Our international, English-taught BA programme in Media Studies focuses on the social and informative functions of media. It provides students with a thorough understanding of the affordances of different platforms and the interplay between them; the political and economic underpinnings of media systems; patterns of use, production and content; and the functions and impact of media in culture and society. The MA programmes Datafication and Digital Literacy, Social Media and Society, and Media Creation and Innovation provide students with cutting-edge knowledge of the digital transformations that profoundly change society.
