About

During the Communication and Information Studies - Language and Media programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, you learn in an international setting that good communication is about more than just correct spelling and careful language use.

Overview

In the Communication and Information Studies - Language and Media programme at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, you explore the fields of Communication Studies, applied linguistics, media analysis, interaction and intercultural communication. Together with international students, you look at the international context of topical issues and look for solutions to contemporary problems.

Future

In the Language and Media specialisation, you are trained as a communications professional who knows how the choice of medium affects the content (140 characters on Twitter, images via Instagram), but also how language usage affects the message you are trying to convey. You are able to apply this knowledge in an international context.

As a graduate of this specialisation, you have a sound understanding of media use in relation to language use, the objectives that can be used to achieve, and a range of relevant research skills to study and shape communicative messages. This makes you well-placed to advise companies on their communication strategies.
