Having had a successful bachelor program for years in English language, the Institute of Behavioural Science and Communication Theory now provides further opportunity to students to extend their professional knowledge and language skills with its newly launched English MA in Communication and Media Science.

The aim of this two-year practice-oriented Communication and Media master program is to train communication and media experts who are able to adapt to the volatile challenges of the labour market and possess the ability to work for and lead various communication/media organizations by gaining an internationally recognized academic qualification.

The major fields of the program include interpersonal, social, strategic (planned) and new media communication, the managing of media and the planning of creative campaigns. To deepen our students’ knowledge the curriculum contains subjects such as Creative Visuality, Cognitive Psychology, Digital Publics and Data-Journalism, among many others.

Besides the wide subject portfolio offered, the most important features of the program are its student-centred aspect and project-based methodology. It encourages students to get engaged with scientific and professional projects addressing real-life phenomena through inquiry-based, constructive and experimental teaching methods.

The program offers three different specializations:

  •   Political Communication
  •  International Communication and
  • Developmental Communication in Organizations.

With each of these the program enables students with the master’s degree students to fill in leading positions in their future work. Besides, our master’s program can also serve as a path towards the academic field with an exceptional opportunity. The one and only English language doctoral school of communication theory in the region is also hosted by the Institute of Behavioural Science and Communication Theory, so MA students are welcome to find out more about academic careers in the fields of communication and media.
