Communication and Information Studies

In the Master's programme in Communication and Information Studies you will study the effects of communication by organisations and companies. This Master's programme has two specialisations, each with their own perspective on professional communication. You can either focus on the way in which organisations can use communication to influence people’s attitudes or behaviour (Communication and Persuasion) or on how organisations can optimize their communication with diverse target groups in international or intercultural settings (Global Communication and Diversity).


  • Communication and Persuasion

    How do organisations tailor messages to their target groups? How can communication be used to influence an audience’s behaviour and opinions? If such questions interest you, you should consider the Master’s programme in Communication and Persuasion.

  • Global Communication and Diversity
