This minor consists of 5 courses:
Introduction to Communication Science
In daily life we are immersed in media and communication. This introductory course presents the main questions that communication scholars ask. You will learn to understand communication in terms of image, agenda setting, transfer of information, propaganda, attitude change, media functions and more.
Marketing and Persuasive Communication
Persuasive communication is everywhere. Marketeers are trying to sell their products, non-profit organizations are recruiting donors and politicians are trying to win public support. How do we make each of these communications effective?
Entertainment is a serious business. In this course you will study the history of entertainment media and their impact on culture, with a strong focus on the psychology of media use.
The minor’s Tutorial Communication Science runs throughout the entire semester. You will conduct your own study on effective communication and possibilities to bring change. The research itself will be carried out in January.
