Are you interested in language and communication design? Then this Master programme is for you!
The programme's primary objective is to produce experts in language (English, German, or Danish) and document/communication design. You will develop the ability to generate original, effective documents in a broad range of fields and obtain expertise in communication processes as well as in the linguistic interaction taking place in a technical or organizational environment. Your linguistic and document design skills can be used to create all kinds of documents for companies or organizations, e.g. brochures, posters, user manuals.
You will gain expertise in

* text analysis and production
* document design
* interaction/conversation analysis
* user studies
A Master in Language and Communication Design prepares you to work in international and intercultural PR, organizational and institutional communication, technical documentation and product development. You are also qualified to pursue an academic career. This program is offered in English which means that the teaching language for general and methodology courses is English. Courses in language specific topics are offered in the language you specialize in.
With an MA in International Business Communication and Communication Design you can find employment in the communications or public relations departments of any company or organization which operates internationally and which therefore needs employees with a high level of language competence.
Moreover, you will be attractive to companies which
* need to produce instruction manuals, apply user-adaptive design, or carry out consumer studies in the development and production of their products;
* are in a process of automating their customer services, e.g. via website question answering or dialogue systems:
* develop automatic language processing systems.
