Communication and Information Studies

All professors and teachers of Communication and Information Studies are part of the Discourse and Communication research group of the Center for Language and Cognition Groningen. They do research in their own area of expertise and implement diverse research projects, regularly collaborating with universities abroad. These projects focus on oral, written, audiovisual and digital communication in their mother tongues or in second or foreign languages, linking the functional characteristics of the various communication media and channels to the contexts and aims of the communication. In addition to careful analyses of the communication itself, experiments are conducted to measure its effects. Particular attention is paid to the effects of strategic persuasive communication in professional settings, such as organizational, media and health communication.

The education you receive is partly based on these research projects of the staff of Communication and Information Studies. You will acquire knowledge of theories and methodologies that you can apply in your own research projects, like your bachelor's thesis.
