THE JOB MARKET AFTER COMMUNICATION SCIENCE

If you got your Bachelor's degree in Communication Science at the UT, you will be a communication professional who is well prepared for the job market. You can handle communication challenges in the broader context of technology, design and organizations. With your knowledge and expertise you can work in the media sector, the business community, the government or in the world of science and research. 

JOB MARKET

During the Bachelor’s programme Communication Science we will thoroughly equip you for landing a good job. The combination we offer of academic knowledge, a broad communication design approach and practical application is an excellent gateway into the job market – whether you aspire to a position in marketing and advertising, PR and communication, consultancy, (ITC) services or research. As a Communication Science graduate you can work in many sectors: 

BUSINESS

Companies are constantly working on how they can make their products, services and innovations as attractive as possible for customers. Communication plays a crucial role in this. For example, you can work in internal and external relations, public relations, advertising, marketing communication, sponsoring, press contacts and information. 

CONSULTANCY FIRMS

Government, companies and non-profit institutions are increasingly using consultancy firms to develop and implement their communication strategies. As a communication expert in this industry, you will be involved in designing communication strategies and solving complex communication problems.

MEDIA SECTOR

As a communication professional in the media sector, you can set to work in areas such as public relations, marketing or research. For example, you might carry out market research. Based on this, you might decide, for example, through which off or online channels companies stay in touch with their stakeholders.

GOVERNMENT

You can advise government bodies on the best way to approach different target groups at national, provincial or municipal level. You might also take care of the development and implementation of communication policy plans. 

RESEARCH INSTITUTIONS

You can also apply for a position as trainee research assistant at a research institution or university. Twente Communication Science graduates conduct (PhD level) research on topics such as technologies on the work floor, design and behavioural measures, or user support and scientific communication. Other research paths are also possible, such as alcohol policy in the Netherlands or the influence of music on people’s eating habits. 

ALUMNI ON COMMUNICATION SCIENCE

In this video, four communication science alumni at Pauw Academy talk about their job and the future of the communication field. The video was produced entirely – from script to presentation – by students enrolled in our Communication Science programme. A great example of the programme’s practical application!
