The aim of the KIJAC project is to build a Graduate School of Journalism over a period of 7-10 years. The school will meet European standards of higher education. KIJAC will enable Kosovan scholars to get PhD’s at international universities in order to become KIJAC professors. The glue between these modules will be provided by experienced and qualified local teaching staff.
KIJAC also aim at having a close relationship with journalists, press institutions and journalism training centres.
KIJAC's mission is to provide future journalists from Kosovo and the wider region with practical journalistic skills as well as a deep understanding of the role of media in a democratic society.
The combination of rich and diverse academic backgrounds between local and international lecturers at KIJAC provides an important intellectual agent that assists enormously in broadening the views of KIJAC students on global and local roles of the media, professional trends and current academic developments.
The funds for the launch of KIJAC are provided by the Royal Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affair
