A Master thesis with the Strategic Communication (COM) group allows you to become an expert in a specific area of the communication arena that is closely linked to your personal interest and future career. During a three to six month period - under close supervision of a staff member - you will thoroughly engage in a full research cycle (proposal writing, development of problem statement, theoretical framework, research questions, framework of analysis, data gathering, data analysis and reporting of the research in the writing of a thesis and, optionally, by means of a presentation).
Selecting a topic
The first step in working on a Master thesis is the selection of a topic. You can either develop your own thesis topic or select an available thesis topic. It is advised, to choose a topic that is close to the research being carried out by the chair group, in order to ensure proper supervision and guidance. Please note that your supervisor must always approve the topic of your thesis.
