Third stream activities

Media and Communication Studies conducts various forms of cooperation and collaboration as part of both teaching and research.

External partnerships are a natural element of education in Media and Communication Studies at Södertörn University. Many courses include visiting lecturers from the media and communication industry, and all our study programmes include placement periods. Course elements have been developed in cooperation with organisations and businesses, allowing students to participate in solving real world problems.

Researchers in Media and Communication Studies at Södertörn University work and conduct research in parallel with other organisations for example in thinktanks, advertising companies and interest organisations. We cooperate with the education sector in the area of media and information skills. Our researchers are also active participants in public debate, and are often commissioned as experts on scientific councils and government enquiries.
