    Programme Description

    One of the essential parts of information transaction and communication is text, verbal or written. One of the purposes of texts is to inform or convince, depending on the communication objectives. Communication designers examine different factors that influence the effectiveness of texts as communication tools. These factors can be the text characteristics, such as style and structure, but also the conversation characteristics and influence of non-verbal communication. Furthermore, the context and purpose of a text and how readers process information also play a major role in communication. In the English Master´s specialisation Communication Design, you will research how communication processes work and how you can effectively influence these processes. You will learn to analyse texts, adjust them for different target groups and you will acquire knowledge on how to measure in practice whether a text has the desired effect.
