Journalism Education in Sweden, Russia, Poland, Estonia and Finland

Omslag för Professional Identity in Changing Media Landscapes: Journalism Education in Sweden, Russia, Poland, Estonia and Finland

Stigbrand, Karin; Nygren, Gunnar

Journalism programmes are popular; they are growing in number the world over despite an often insecure labour market. What do journalism students expect? How do they see their future as journalists? What kind of training is offered by the Academy?

This report presents journalism education in five universities, in the Baltic Sea Region, from different perspectives: the teachers and the students’ goals in relation to wishes and needs of the sector and common challenges in changing media landscapes.

The comparative project was financed by the Foundation of Baltic and Eastern European Studies in Sweden.

Interviews with teachers, as well as the student survey, were made possible thanks to the collaboration with Maria Lukina, Moscow State University; Dominika Rafalska, University of Warsaw; Halliki Harro Loit, University of Tartu and Raimo Salokangas, University of Jyväskylä.
