Module 11: A Better World (201700207)

In this module you get to tackle a really challenging problem, putting into practice the knowledge, skills and tools you will have gained in all the preceding modules. Our conviction that communication pervades most of the central problems in our world today means that we want to equip communication students like you  to reduce harm and to do good. Reflection is central to this module, and the projects you can choose from cover themes like democracy, social injustice, climate change, and the Internet of Things.

Module 12: Bachelor Thesis

You will complete the Bachelor’s programme with a Bachelor’s thesis. This means you will independently conduct a study into a practically-relevant topic. Your study will involve literature research as well as empirical data collection. Your research findings will lead to practical recommendations. You will write a research report and present your findings at a symposium.


After getting your Bachelor’s degree you will have the Bachelor of Science title, which allows you to immediately progress to the Master’s programme in Communication Studies at the University of Twente. The options on the labour market after Communication Science are very diverse.
