The Master’s Communication and Information provides students with a solid theoretical and methodological foundation for understanding the way in which language is used for informative and argumentative purposes. The programme offers insight into verbal communication in a range of practical settings, including parliamentary debate, political speeches, legal decisions, legislative debates, drug advertisements, doctor-to-patient consultation, mediation, negotiations and academic research papers, and allows you to specialise in one specific communicative genre.
This year, you won’t be able to attend any busy on-campus events with lots of people. But our online Open House is the perfect way to get to know UvA study programmes and university life from the comfort of your own home.
Every study programme has an Open House page with videos, FAQs and live events. On the main Open House website you can discover all our programmes,explore the city and campus, and get inspired during our theme weeks.
You will learn to analyse verbal communication in prevalent genres from political, legal, health and academic domains. You are trained to analyse and evaluate the discourse in these genres using insights from discourse analysis, argumentation theory, rhetoric, genre theory and stylistics.
