Language and Communication
PDF version

In Language and Communication, the Department teaches and researches communication from the point of view of language. We teach courses such as Principles of Communication, Communicative Grammar of English, Crisis Communication and Language in Public Relations, Public Speaking, Language in Newspapers, Stylistics, and Language and Gender. By calling the programme Language and Communication, we distinguish it from communication in the broader sense of mass media which deals not only with language but also issues such as television and radio programming, photography and cinematography and editing of videos and films.
