The proliferation and development of technology has created an abundance of possibilities for communication. Therefore, it makes sense to analyse the different sort of communication processes.
In the Master's degree in Communication Studies, the focus is on language, language use and communication through diverse media. Communication Studies investigates the communication processes and products from a discourse-perspective. This means that interaction is central to this approach.

During the Master's degree, there is a lot of attention for analytical, problem solving and research skills. In addition, the programme has a strong interdisciplinary element: rather than just exploring communication studies, you will learn about language proficiency and information studies as well.
