What will I learn?
The Bachelor’s degree course in Communication Science deals with the theories, empirical analyses and practical references of communication and media in connection with society, culture, economy and politics. At the beginning of your studies, you will be introduced to the theories and methods of communication science, and you will get to know the professional fields within the range of media and communication. In addition, students acquire the basic skills and techniques of academic research and theories, and gain an insight into the various research fields of communication science (e.g., audio-visual and online communication, journalism or organisation communication). In the course of their studies, students can choose to specialize in one of these fields.
