JMI’s goal is to become a Centre of Excellence in journalism education in Jordan and the region. JMI provides two pillars of services – a one year practical MA in Journalism and journalism training programmes, in Arabic.

Jordan Media Institute offers the Master’s Programme  in cooperation with University of Jordan in accordance with the academic agreement between the two institutions.

JMI’s goal is to offer the best standards of journalistic practice with an emphasis on the traditional aspects of journalism such as writing and reporting, ethics and community issues. This, combined with new media courses, will enable JMI’s graduates to compete regionally and internationally.

Journalism academic experts from Jordan, the region and around the world have developed a unique practical curriculum and courses that are benchmarked on international best practices while considering the uniqueness of the Arab region. World-class facilities, including newsrooms and studios, enable our students to learn production techniques on the very equipment they will later use as professionals.

JMI’s contribution to the Project focuses on increasing awareness of journalists on their role in elections coverage and other subjects such as gender-sensitive election reporting as well as reporting on social issues. Workshops, debates and public discussions before, during and after elections would be present in their activities.
