Department of Communication Studies

The Department of Communication Studies in Salzburg has undergone major changes in its history of more than fifty years. The original emphasis on mass communication has been gradually expanded towards an interdisciplinary, socio-culturally interested teaching and research profile. Our study programs focus on conveying a theoretically informed research approach to questions of e.g., media change, user behavior, cultural comparison, organizational communication and journalism considerate of employability in contemporary communication professions.
