Media and Communication Studies

Media and Communication Studies at Södertörn University is well-established in the area of Swedish and international research and education. In Media Studies, the digital media landscape is explored using historical and cultural perspectives that place contemporary phenomena in a historical context, so providing a deeper understanding of the present. Qualitative methods and hermeneutic approaches characterise our approach to Media Studies, along with extensive research on the Baltic Sea region and Eastern Europe.

Regardless of your future career, Media Studies provides an excellent foundation. Many of our former students work in professions related to the media, such as communication, journalism, PR or media production.

Knowledge of the media is central to civic education in a society that is increasingly shaped by digital media. Media and Communication Studies offers in-depth knowledge of how the media functions, how it has changed over time, how it is organised and how it influences society and culture.
