In the English-language Master's specialization in Business Communication & Digital Media, you will focus on communication issues in the area of business communications. You will research how people communicate with one another using a variety of means, and how they process information through language, pictures, sound and computers. For example, you will acquire knowledge about pitfalls and misunderstandings when exchanging information, negotiating or managing conflicts in business settings, and the principles of marketing communications. The emphasis lies on the effects of digital communication on our society and culture. The program in Business Communication and Digital Media enables you to study the consequences/implications of media selection for effective communication transaction.

Internal communication

One of the most important issues within organizations is internal communication.
•How do teams communicate and make decisions?
•How do people deal with conflicts within their organization?
•How do managers use advanced business communication to motivate their employees?

These questions are all part of the internal business communication that you will deal with during your studies. You will focus on important aspects of interpersonal and group communication.

External communication

In this context, external communication is more than marketing and promoting the products on offer, it concerns the image of the organization.
•How do organizations manage a crisis situation?
•How do they communicate with media?
•How do organizations improve their image through communication?

These questions will be answered during this program. You will study various theories that explain how people make observations and form their opinions and you will learn about how organizations reach customers and convince them.

Digital Media

Over the past decade, the internet and new media have developed rapidly. The increasing importance of the internet and new media has a major impact on business communication. There are several issues that organizations are facing in this particular field of communication, such as announcing news by email, the most convenient way of communication with customers, the quality and user-friendliness of their website. Another part of this study is the social media aspect and how organizations deal with it.

The developments of the internet have given database journalism a new definition, according to which it defines a process where the database becomes the center of the journalistic work (as opposed to the story in traditional journalism). It slowly evolved into data journalism; a journalistic process based on analyzing and filtering large data sets for the purpose of creating a new story.

This new international Master's program explores the opportunities of data journalism from four angles: data retrieval, data storytelling, data visualization and data publishing. It combines the scientific methods of data treatment with the core values of journalism: select, arrange, digest and reflect. The Data Journalism Master's track puts a strong focus on online and social media based journalism.

The master track Data Journalism (DJ) has a natural connection with Human Aspects of Information Technology (HAIT) and Communication Design (CD). Embedded in the strong Communication and Information Sciences program, Tilburg University believes it has launched a unique Master's program in which students learn how to transfer information and how new means of communication can be used.

Responding to changes in rural environments

Specialists in Rural Development, Communication and Innovation are greatly needed in organizations and projects around the world, especially those offering capacity building, training, information and e-learning while addressing rural poverty, social equity, sustainability, resource scarcity and food security. Communication is the key in bringing about social change and innovation. However, adapting development projects and processes to social, political, economic and environmental changes poses challenges to many organisations, which has resulted in a pressing need to facilitate innovation and communication processes. Organizations and professionals providing such services require knowledge on facilitation, public participation and innovative praxis.

When an organisation reorganises its service provision and information management, there is often a considerable need for new management styles and thus for capacity building. Various sources and activities – such as policy reforms, customer surveys and the formulation of funding conditions – suggest this applies at all organisational levels. In some cases, complex organisational problems need to be addressed; in others, staff needs to improve their ability to design and implement new strategies and activities for information and communication.

Communication Design

One of the essential ways in which information is transferred and communicated is through text, whether verbal or written. Texts should inform or convince, depending on the communication objectives. Communication designers research different factors that can affect a text in order to create an effective communication tool. These factors can be characteristics of the text, such as style and structure, but also the conversation characteristics and the influence of non-verbal communication.

Furthermore, the context and purpose of a text and how readers process information also play a major role in communication. In the English-taught Master's specialization in Communication Design, you will research how communication processes work and how you can influence these processes effectively. You will learn to analyze texts and tailor them to different target groups and acquire knowledge about how to measure whether in practice a text has the desired effect.

Career Prospects Communication Design

After completing the Communication Design specialization, you will be able to conduct research on the transfer of information through text. Moreover, you will be capable of advising people about writing a clear, attractive and convincing text according to various communication objectives. You can embark on a career in different positions within profit or non-profit organizations, government agencies and related organizations or in the business world.

After graduating, you could also continue your career as an academic researcher in the broad field of communication.

This is a small selection of positions you may apply for after you have completed your programme:
•Communication Design Manager
•Communication Strategist
•Advertising Design Strategist
•Communication Design Engineer
•Device User Experience Design Specialist
•Design Researcher

The Research Master's program in Language and Communication is a two-year course of study offered jointly by Tilburg University and Radboud University Nijmegen. Read more
The Research Master's program in Language and Communication is a two-year course of study offered jointly by Tilburg University and Radboud University Nijmegen. Both universities combine leading-edge research with excellent education. This program, with its strong emphasis on empirical study, is unique in the Netherlands.

The empirical study of the human capacity for communication

The program covers the numerous ways in which written and spoken language is used - for example, to persuade, to inform, and to exchange ideas. Because communication and the use of language are so tightly interwoven, we take an integrated approach. For example, when other, non-verbal cues are taken into account, understanding spoken language is made easier. Such cues may include facial expressions and eye contact. The interrelationships between language and communication have been further illuminated by developments in information and communication technology. These have opened up exciting new areas of research, providing insight, for example, into ways in which information from both linguistic and non-linguistic sources can be integrated in multimodal messages.

What makes this program special?

What is the main difference between this two-year full-time program and Master's programs at other universities in the Netherlands? Firstly, the fact that we use empirical research techniques to focus on language as it is actually used. And, secondly, there is the way we explore language and communication as an integrated whole. Communication in face-to-face and multi-modal interactions at work is a central theme. Other topics include understanding ways in which the use of language shapes institutional, cross-cultural, and international interaction. The current partnership between Tilburg University, School of Humanities and Radboud University Nijmegen, Faculty of Arts intensifies fifteen years of collaboration in the Centre for Language Studies (CLS). CLS is closely linked to the Max Planck Institute for Psycholinguistics (MPI) and the Baby Research Centre. This Research Master's program, which relies heavily on research carried out in Tilburg and Nijmegen, is open to all graduates - from universities inside or outside the Netherlands- with a relevant BA or one-year MA.

Tutor system

Tutors are members of the scientific staff. They advise students on how to arrive at the most appropriate training program (this includes things like how best to make up for deficiencies in their previous training, and which electives are best suited to which specialisations). Besides this, tutors also advise the Graduate School with respect to students' requests for facilities. Tutors are assigned to students by the Examination Committee.

Career Perspective Research Master in Language & Communication

The main focus of this Research Master’s program is on academic training, which makes it ideal for those wishing to embark on a career in research. Besides research positions at universities, there are research and management positions in businesses, (non-) profit organizations, the educational sector and the government (e.g., the Ministry of Education, Culture and Science), which require extensive research skills but not a PhD degree.

In addition this Research Master’s program caters for the growing demand from the public and private sectors for university graduates with academic insights and research skills. Many graduates will join research groups in the public or private sectors. These may address a wide range of topics such as advanced internet, enhancing professional communication, politics and administration, journalism and education in an international context.

Course detail

It is an environment where students, artists and researchers are allowed to formulate their own scientific questions. They are encouraged to translate personal inspirations and curiosities into their own manageable and compact research projects.

The programme recognises creativity as an important factor in scientific innovation. It aims to be a place where students, artists and scientists conduct research by creating innovative solutions, inspired by results and principles of science. To achieve this, the curriculum focuses on creative exploration and on the understanding of science and technology. The programme encourages its students to draw from the knowledge available throughout Leiden University and the Art Science Interfaculty in The Hague. Key concepts throughout the programme are creativity, technology and scientific research. The programme’s goal is to stimulate innovation and creativity in scientific research by the innovative application of technology. Media Technology can be said to deliver ‘autonomous scientists’, just as art academies deliver autonomous artists.

Format

Science is meant to generate knowledge, in a rational and sensible way. Many research methods exist to do this. We believe that ‘science by creating’ can play an important role alongside other methods. By applying technology in fresh ways, one learns new things; new methods and alternative insights are discovered. We see this as a valid and productive way of doing research. Consequently, student projects in which actual products are realised are important in the Media Technology MSc programme. However, the process of researching while creating the product is as important as the product itself. The projects always lead to a working end-product or proof of concept that contains a media component: visual, auditive or otherwise. Most often, a scientific paper is also produced that describes the scientific advancements resulting from the project. Students are encouraged to submit these papers to international journals, conferences and arts festivals.

Reasons to choose Media technology in Leiden

1. We promote and facilitate autonomous and creative scientific research.
2. Research in our programme may result in scientific papers, but also in art installations, designs, computer programmes, etc.

Careers

Job opportunities are diverse. In short, any job in which science and creativity are combined is possible. Common work fields for alumni are:

- scientific research, such as PhD programmes
- the creative industry
- the artistic professions
- teaching in higher professional education (HBO) level
- However, opportunities are limitless and depend greatly on the personal interest of graduates.
