The main objectives of the PhD ICT, Media, Communication and Journalism programme from Aarhus University  are to provide supervision, courses, International research networks and environments for graduate students within the studies of information and communication technologies, print, digital and audio-visual media, and journalism.



  • The research environments are International and include approximately 140 employees, spanning across a wide array of research fields and topics. The PhD research projects predominantly belong to one of two groupings: Humanities and IT, and Media and Journalism studies.
  • The PhD research projects in the PhD ICT, Media, Communication and Journalism programme from Aarhus University  are often conducted on a cross-disciplinary basis, as the research questions arising from this incessantly changing and dynamic area are highly influenced by both technological, economic, political and cultural developments, and thus require a wide array of approaches. Research in the programme is therefore characterised by the use of a broad span of different theoretical concepts and perspectives, and methods and approaches from both sociology (e.g., ethnography, or surveys), the humanities (e.g., textual analysis or discourse analysis), new digital methods (e.g., network analysis), and in certain fields also by implementing practice-based approaches in the research processes (e.g., artistic or design development).
