As most ComDev students are well aware, the master programme has during the last year undergone thorough evaluation by the Swedish National Agency for Higher Education (HSV), along with all other educations in the area of Media and Communication at both bachelor and master levels. The focus on this evaluation was the correspondence between learning goals and learning outcomes in the examinations in general and the final Degree Work in particular. Ylva Ekström was assigned to write our so-called self-evaluation and put a lot of effort into this important quality work – and today we received the reward. ComDev is the only programme of twenty-six in the area of Media and Communication in Sweden that has received the highest mark.
We are immensely proud and happy to make this announcement to all current and prospective ComDev students at Malmö University. After twelve years of pioneering development we stand stronger than ever, with increasing numbers of applicants to the programme, and we are eager to continue and expand our work, in collaboration with our regional and international partners, to establish a centre of excellence in Communication for Social Change and Development at Malmö University.
