The School

The School of Journalism & Mass Communications was established in 1991. It is housed in a six-storey neoclassical building, in the centre of Thessaloniki. The School offers a balanced blend of courses, compulsory as well as elective. Currently, it offers the following study programmes: undergraduate (directions: “journalism” and “mass communications”), postgraduate (directions: “journalism & new media” and “communication and culture”), taught in Greek, and the Erasmus programme for both directions, taught in English. It also offers PhD programmes. More than 400 students study in all programmes of the School. The students actively participate in internship programmes in Greece and abroad which qualifies them for employment in journalism and mass communications both in the public and private sectors. The School encourages the co-operation of students with local and national media, by producing radio and television programmes aired during prime time. The students also produce a weekly electronic newspaper hosted in our website. The facilities of the School include the library, as well as the media informatics and the electronic media laboratories. The School cooperates, through the LLP/ Erasmus programme, with 42 Universities in 20 countries in the European Union, thus contributing to the overall European student and teaching staff exchange and it is one of the very few Schools at Aristotle University which offers a full international Erasmus programme in English for a complete semester.
