About the Programme

Communication is essential to human beings. Human life and social organization depend on it.

In this programme you will study all aspects of communication and acquire an advanced understanding of communication issues in various contexts and advanced knowledge about theories and methods useful in studies of communication in its context.

Content

How do factors such as purpose, roles, medium, instrument and environment affect communication? You will study communication in classical and modern organizational theories which will increase your understanding of how different activities influence communication within an organization. You will also study the role of communication within different professional fields and the various professional demands on written and oral communication as well as the use of pictures in communication in for example business life, mass media and education. You will learn about the communicative practice of leaders and the characteristics of successful organizing and get an enhanced comprehension of the relationship between leadership and communication with a special emphasis on the politics of everyday life in organizations.

How are intercultural conflicts solved? Courses in intercultural communication will give you different perspectives of the notion of culture and cultural differences. You will acquire a deeper understanding of how and when cultural differences are relevant and when they are not. You will receive insight into important areas of interpersonal communication; bodily communication, communication dependent on basic social relations such as family and friendship as well as gender related aspects.

Different types of communication technologies will be studied, the relations between technology and communication and relations between technology, communication and social organization. You will learn about multi-modal communication, communication that uses more than one sense modality, for example the use of speech, gestures and facial expressions. We look at cultural variations in how different sense modalities are used as well as how to develop multimodal agents for communication between human and computer.

In a degree project you will get the opportunity to show your ability to formulate relevant research questions, to find and evaluate information and data in an independent and critical way, and to write a scientific thesis within a given period of time.

Within the programme, you can also learn about rhetoric and argumentation and get an opportunity to practice your public speaking skills.
