The Bachelor's Communication Science will train you to become a 21st-century ‘communication engineer’. Communication deals with how people and organisations interact, exchange information, and collaborate. Uniquely, this programme teaches communication in the broader context of technology and organisations. You will learn about new technologies and how they relate to communication; you will discover how to influence behaviour and experience through multisensory design; and you will learn to recognise how organisations and networks operate in today’s changing world.
You will gain a solid academic foundation, while also preparing practically and personally for a role as communicator. As a communication professional, you will understand important developments like sustainability, digitalisation and tech trends – and be able to explain and tap into them with the people or organisations you work with. After graduating, you can enter the Master's or go work in marketing, PR, or consultancy.
