Does social media lead to a less social society? What is the impact of negative media coverage on a company? And how do you communicate life-saving guidelines in times of crisis? As a Communication Science student you will focus on today’s communication issues.


As we find ourselves in a continually changing media landscape, where everyone shares information and can have an impact on the reputation of organizations, brands or politicians, it makes sense that there is a high demand for experts who understand these developments and can manage their impact. During your programme you will learn to conduct independent social science research and analyse communication processes at an academic level. You can choose one of three specializations to enhance your knowledge and skills:

1. Marketing and Corporate communication;

2. Media Psychology;

3. Political Communication, Digital News and Public Opinion.


As a student you will be challenged to solve problems in a professional context by giving specific advice to an organization with communication issues. In addition to learning about media developments, this Master will help you to understand these developments. If you understand the media principles that repeatedly apply in places, you will have developed your most important professional skill set.
