International Communication (IC) is a study programme for inquisitive students who understand the effects that messages, news and campaigns have on society, who feel comfortable using modern communication technology and who consider the world as their home. The programme trains students to become communication professionals who build up trust and who are pro-active, innovative, creative, respectful and responsible. Sounds challenging, right? Over the last few decades, modern communication methods have turned the world into a global village and constant technological innovation has changed the field of communication at a rapid pace. This requires today’s communication professionals to be able to adapt in a field that is constantly on the move.
In this hectic and connected world, organisations have to communicate effectively with their stakeholders. Effective communication builds solid reputations, produces powerful messages and establishes relationships with stakeholders on a personal level. The International Communication programme will give you the skills and knowledge needed for an international career in communication. You will develop the flexibility to adapt to changes in a fast moving industry, identify the dynamics behind effective communication and put the knowledge and skills you gain into practice. In choosing this longstanding international programme you will be joining students from all over the world to study communication in an international context and from an intercultural perspective.
You will learn about public relations, marketing, consultancy, crisis communication, public affairs and business communication. You will receive media training, learn how to write publications and organise an international event. Throughout the programme, special attention is paid to developing intercultural competencies and facilitation skills.
