Approval of the Cross-Media Journalism Master Program in Libya


On January 20, 2020, the National Center for Quality Assurance & Accreditation of Educational & Training Institutes, at the Libyan Education Ministry, approved the didactic plan of the Cross-Media Journalism Master Program, in the framework of the Erasmus+ project “PAgES – Post-crisis Journalism in Post-crisis Libya“.

The project, co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union, is coordinated by IULM University, and it involves the four universities of Tripoli, Sirte, Misurata and Zawia, alongside with Sapienza University, the University of Aveiro, University of Granada and UNIMED.

The educational plan of the Master is the result of a 12-month common elaboration, based on both the bottom-up level of needs analysis and the top-down level of examination of international best practices. The collaboration among Libyan and European universities guarantees for an advanced and innovative educational program, while the implementation of Bologna Process rules and 120 ECTS system will offer students an ideal opportunity for accessing the global job market.

The Master will be offered in the four Libyan universities of Tripoli, Sirte, Zawia and Misurata, and it will start in September 2020. Students will also be offered the opportunity of a two-week study visit at Sapienza University in Rome and IULM University, Milan. Information about students’ enrollment will be made available in next months.
