Communication remains one of the most common and widely used buzzwords. However, the term and its associated academic discipline of (media and) communication studies often hides a great variety of questions and conceptual approaches.
Applied Communication MA takes these variety of positions as its starting point and focuses predominantly on the use of communication, communicative practices and communication policies.
The course is taught by a team of enthusiastic specialists in the field of communication studies. Staff will provide an introduction to theoretical perspectives and debates in a friendly and stimulating setting and you will be encouraged to make practical, critical and creative use of digital media (e.g. blogging, video, imaging, etc.) as part of your assignments.
