In Communication and Information Studies you will learn how communication works and what role language plays in it.

Two specialisations are taught in English: Language & Media and Language & Mind (previously Language Learning & Language Teaching). English Language & Communication Studies is also English taught, but has a Dutch language proficiency requirement. In the specialisation Language and Media you will learn how and why organizations apply new (and old) media in business-to-business and business-to-consumer interaction. The specialisation Language and Mind bridges the gap between what linguists know about the learnability of languages and what language teachers experience in daily life. We aim to explain why certain aspects of languages are extremely difficult to learn while others are not, and how this varies for different learner groups.
