Frequently asked questions

  • Can I still decide during the pre-Master to change to another track?

    Yes you can. All tracks have the same entry requirements. After completing the Pre-Master, you can choose a track again in Studielink.

    Note: this does not apply to the Research Master. If you have doubts about taking the Research Master, please contact the study adviser as soon as possible (not only after the pre-Master).

  • I have completed "name of a study programme", do I have to do a pre-Master first?

    That is always viewed and assessed per person. If you want to be sure, sign up. The admission officers will let you know if you need to do a pre-Master. Three things are considered:

    • Do you have knowledge of the most important theories in communication science?
    • Do you have knowledge in statistics?
    • Do you know how to write an empirical paper?

    If you answered “no” to one of the questions, chances are that you will have to follow (part of) the pre-Master.

  • What are my job opportunities when I finish the Corporate Communication Master's programme?

    A Master's degree in Communication Science equips students with a high-level academic education. By graduation you will be an expert in organisational communication, public relations and corporate communication from an academic perspective. You will be able to advise organisations about their communication strategies and policies at a corporate level. You will know how to underpin this advice with empirical research and the most recent theories in the field. You will be equipped to produce evidence based communication programmes for big and small organisations. The knowledge and skills acquired during the course provide an effective grounding for positions in:

    • Communication research (academic researcher, media researcher, market and opinion researcher)
      • e.g. working as a junior researcher at NPO
    • Communication advice (publishing, public information expert, advertising or PR consultant, communication consultant)
      • e.g. being a marketing consultant at Groupon.
    • Management (publisher, programme director, research agency)
      •  e.g. working as a publishing relations manager at Elsevier.
