Sámi Journalism from an Indigenous Perspective

Are you already a journalist working within indigenous media? Or are you interested in working with indigenous issues? The Master’s Degree Program in Indigenous Journalism provides deep insight into the world of journalism, while simultaneously examining the world of journalism from an indigenous perspective. The program is built on the two main subject blocks of journalism and media studies, with a special focus on indigenous media and journalism within an indigenous context.

This new and unique tuition-free program starts in January 2015.

The core areas of focus are the following:

  • Theory and methods in journalism research
  • The relations between sources, journalists and society
  • Media and global indigenous politics
  • The role of indigenous journalism and the media in diverse societies

This two year programme will be taught by recognized experts in the relevant areas, and will require residence in Guovdageaidnu (Kautokeino), at the purpose built Sami University College, for a part of the programme.

For admission requirements, see the program website.
