The 5th European and the 8th Nordic Symposium on Multimodal Communication

16‒17 October, 2017

Bielefeld University, Germany


New MA program on Multimodal Communication starting in September 2017 at the Vrije Universiteit/VU in Amsterdam, Netherlands.

The one-year program, taught in English, welcomes applications from students holding or completing a Bachelor’s degree in linguistics, English, or language and communication. Core courses in the program concern the study of talk as a combination of speech and gesture, the differing roles of text and images in print and online communication, metaphor in various media as a means of framing ideas, and genres as a basic-level category of discourse events. Upon completion, students will be awarded an MA in Communication and Information Studies. Learn how there’s more to communication than meets the eye.
