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.
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.
