Masters in Communication Sciences

Communication sciences see the human behaviour from a scientific point of view and focus on nonverbal/verbal and intercultural communication, as well as rhetorical studies. This field of study influences, on one hand, the interpretation of received information and, on the other hand, controls the way a message is being sent.

During a Bachelor’s degree in communication sciences, students learn how to explain communication issues and put their knowledge into practice through experimental design, surveys, focus groups, conversation analysis and interviews. Research is an important aspect of this study and is mostly visible when students enrol in a Master’s degree in communication sciences.

Communications sciences are inter connected to psychology, sociology, political sciences and other fields that target human behaviour and its evolution. The practical side is centred around mass media technologies. Graduates can find high paid jobs in public relations, online media, journalism and other publishing institutions, as well as in the advertising industry.
