• to design, revise and improve organization-internal and -external documents (leaflets, webpages, brochures, letters, forms etc.) on the basis of psycholinguistic, cognitive and linguistic knowledge about communication,

The program includes one semester at one of our partner universities or a university of your choice, where the students can specialize in one of the many applications of communication design in business, technical and intercultural communication. Alternatively, students can carry out internships in companies or research projects, for instance, on human-robot interaction.
