Overall objective

The project Global Communication: Equity and Ethics is problem-oriented, exemplary, participant-driven, and group-based activity, where the student develops and documents knowledge, skills, and competencies to work with a defined, self-chosen, professional problem that focuses on identifying, explaining, and solving specific challenges relating to diversity and inclusion in global, intercultural, or local contexts, including professional organizations and interpersonal relations.

The project aims to provide the student with the theoretical, methodological, and practical knowledge, skills, and competencies within global communication, with an emphasis on equity and ethics. These qualifications enable the student to analyse, prepare, implement, evaluate and discuss communication activities and the role of digital media in representing and reinforcing issues of public concern. Students will become familiar with and able to choose between various research methods, thus establishing robust research designs for the study of empirical challenges, gaining proficiency in offering research-based communicative solutions to such issues. The project must include a concrete digital communication product developed by the student, as well as a theoretically based account of the ethical and practical considerations in connection with its planning and preparation. Emphasis is placed on the fact that the linguistic and visual presentation corresponds to the purpose and choice of media, including compliance with normal formal requirements with regard to grammar and spelling.

The project work is supported by guidance and a number of activities that introduce and train the student in developing global communication practices, as well as managing and designing concrete communication initiatives alert to questions of diversity, inclusion, and exclusion.

The project report must be based on relevant, academic literature of at least 1000 pages.
