Deadline: November 1, 2022

Dear ECREA members, would you like to join us in a pioneer scientific work of mapping higher journalism education in Europe supported by UNESCO?

There are numerous study programmes that educate journalists, but there is no central place where one can access updated information about them fast and easily. This freely accessible interactive map presenting data with regard to geographical, institutional and programme characteristics, useful for future students, researchers, professionals and the wider public, will resolve that problem. It will be developed by an international European team of diverse collaborators - researchers, teachers, journalists, managers, students, etc.

Are you one of them?

The project is already up and running: we have an interactive digital database platform, and the Manual for collaborators which you are strongly advised to consult before deciding whether to collaborate.

You can start by adding data about your institution and study programme, and then collecting and entering data about other institutions in your country. The information we seek - name of the institution/department/faculty/study programme, institution ownership, type, and address, study programme foundation year, duration, degree level, website link, etc. We especially encourage those who will be dedicated to the entry of all study programmes that educate journalists in a particular country.

What is interesting is that you can see your own entry right away on the map, and track other people’s contributions. Every HEJDE project collaborator contributing to building the map will receive an official certificate of collaboration.

The deadline for this HEJDE project activity is November 1, 2022.

Mapping higher journalism education in Europe is the main activity of the institutional scientific project Higher Education of Journalists in a Digital Environment (HEJDE) of the Faculty of Humanities of the Juraj Dobrila University of Pula for a three-year period (2021 – 2023). It is directed toward the research on the state, challenges and educational opportunities of the European academic education of journalists in the digital environment. It brings together an international team of associates, scientists and institutions organized in a few teams which work on key project activities from different perspectives. ECREA TWG Journalism and Communication Education is one of the HEJDE project partners.

If you are interested you can directly Sign up. Should you have any questions please write to the HEJDE project leader e-mail

We hope you will join us in this highly important work!
