The Communication Science programme of the University of Amsterdam focuses on the production, content, reception and effects of (semi-) public-mediated communication in its social context. Examples are the social news services, in which journalists mediate between information sources and the public; publicity and information campaigns, in which media channels address their audiences through printed or electronic media; entertainment programmes, in which recipients use media to shape part of their free time in a pleasant way; and online forums, where people meet each other virtually. The role, significance, and scale of these types of mediated communication are increasing in our society. Students of the Communication Science Bachelor’s programme study the causes and particularly the consequences of this increase, for society as well as for senders and receivers.
Upon graduation you will be awarded a degree certificate in Communication Science. As a Bachelor of Science you can enter the labour market. Most students however, decide to continue their studies and obtain their Master’s degree because they expect further specialization contributes to even better career perspectives.
