How can you build an intelligent search engine? What is the best way to present a text? And how do you design a user-friendly website? Find out in this programme.

This programme is a specialization of the MA degree in Communication and Information Sciences.

As a student of Information Science, you learn to transfer data into accessible and intelligible information. You will do research in the domain of language, text and computer-mediated communication.

All courses are taught in English. Deficiency programs are partly taught in Dutch.
