Do social media influence how you vote? Does your Instagram account show the real you? Is Twitter as reliable as a newspaper? 


The world is in the throes of a communication revolution and media use is constantly changing. During the Bachelor of Communication Science programme at VU Amsterdam, you will study the effect of media and communication on what people think and do. 


The small-scale setup allows ample opportunity to develop close relationships with your lecturers. The close-knit atmosphere of the programme is reflected in the cutthroat football tournament organised annually between students and lecturers. There is also an active student association that regularly organises activities and events. 
The programme makes use of project-based education. Every semester has an overarching theme, in which you will follow relevant courses and work on a project together with your fellow students. These projects involve particular communication problems for you to analyse and solve, often in collaboration with external companies. This way, you will gain valuable professional experience long before you graduate.
