Communication and language behaviour

Language use varies between different groups in society. This field studies, for example, issues of language choice in particular communicative settings, but also aspects of the communication process itself, particularly the role of social media and digital media. In addition there are courses that investigate the social-psychological, or cognitive, effects of different communication patterns.

Relevant courses are listed below.
Note: Courses marked with an asterisk (*) are offered in alternate years. If a course is not offered in the current academic year, this is indicated under ‘period’ as ‘not offered in 2020-2021’.
