The Communication programme of the University of Gothenburg stimulates independent, critical, and creative minds. Insights and perspectives from disciplines such as media and communication studies, linguistics, organization and management research, and sociology allow you to develop a comprehensive understanding of communication as a vibrant field of research and practice.



The increasingly globalized, digitalized, and specialized society we live in today poses a number of complex challenges: fostering inclusion, equality and diversity in fast-changing work environments, ensuring and strengthening mental wellbeing in the light of online harassment and information overload, or for example listening and being heard in an arena of many competing voices.

Communication is key in meeting challenges

The Communication programme of the University of Gothenburg empowers you to grow as an independent, critical researcher and skilled professional, able to navigate the intricate dimensions of intercultural, organizational, and digital communication.
