Danish School of Media and Journalism is a merger of the graphic school and the Danish Journalist School. Both schools were established by the media industry, and the aim was then, as now, to build research and education centers who deliver the best possible specialized graduates in the areas.
The graphic school was established in 1943, while a course in Journalism has been taught at Aarhus University since 1946. Then from 1962 the Danish Journalist School became the only official place to educate journalists in Denmark. In January 2008, the two schools merged and became DMJX. In 2011, a bachelor in communication was added to an already broad range of bachelors which include TV- and media production, visual communication, media production and management as well as photojournalism and journalism.
The school has two campus, one in Aarhus and one in Copenhagen, and the school in Aarhus houses students of communication, journalism and photo journalism.
The core of all the educations is to work for a better understanding of society and democracy and to educate strong communicators. Every year about 500 students start a bachelor at the school and DMJX has about 160 employees.
