The programme brings together five leading European institutions in journalism and media education, combining the best academic research and teaching from the different national educational cultures. It offers the unique experience of studying in two European countries.

- Politics & Communication (University of Amsterdam)
- Totalitarianism & Transition (Charles University Prague)
- Crisis & Conflict (City University London)
- Cultures & Contexts (Ludwig-Maximilians-University of Munich)
