Description

The course provides a critical discussion of the concepts of democracy, globalization and cosmopolitanism, in relation to the development of new media and communication technology. We deal with issues concerning ethics in the emerging global media sphere, and what challenges this may entail for established social and cultural norms and ideas. The cosmopolitan ideal for transnational and international relations, that is often reflected in modern theories of globalization, is discussed in relation to the rapid development of the media and the kinds of problems and opportunities this brings about for the cosmopolitan idea. We investigate these areas with a theoretical base in contemporary literature and we approach key concepts and debates from an integrated perspective, inspired by the history of ideas and the philosophy of science.

International student?

Make your application in the First Admission Round at universityadmissions.se.

Application period October–January for autumn semester and June–August for spring semester.

First or Second Admission Round?

All international students are encouraged to apply to the First admission round. This round takes place many months before the start of a semester and gives students the time they need to pay their tuition fees, apply for and receive their residence permit (if required), find housing, etc.

The Second admission round is an alternative for students from EU/EEA countries as they do not need a residence permit. Non-EU/EEA students will most likely not have enough time to obtain their permit before the start of the semester. However, even EU/EEA students are advised to apply during the First admission round, as some programmes can be applied for only in the January round. Also, this provides applicants with an admission decision much earlier, which is helpful in making decisions about their studies.
