This programme is part of the Master's degree in Communication and Information Science.
Central to this programme are verbal communication behaviour and the way in which people learn to develop this behaviour. The themes that are important in this context vary: from the development of interactive skills with children to the writing skills of professionals. Changes in society (like the emergence of new media of communication) and their influence on developments in language behaviour are some of the topics you will explore.
With this programme, you choose a theme with a certain social urgency. Our society is making high demands on our communication skills. This has led to a great need for education and training in this area, based on scientific research. This programme trains you to become an expert in the field of communication and education.
There are many possibilities for graduates. You could choose for a position in research, consultancy or coaching in a great variety of sectors. You might work at an institute for education research or at an expertise centre in the field of language education. In addition, you could work at an agency for communication training, coaching and advice.
