1. Communication for Change
Today’s challenges call for integral approaches that connect science with society. The minor Communication for change provides you with insights from to the interdisciplinary field of strategic communication. You learn how to apply principles from social psychology, communication and collaborative processes for societal change.

In your future research projects, you will find that without support from society your findings have no power to innovate. How to connect your research to society early on? In the minor Effective Communication you will learn all about societal innovation processes and effective communication, making sure your findings have impact.
Alternative facts, distrust in government, societal conflicts – what can we trust and how should we respond?
