About the Department of Media, Cognition and Communication

The department comprises four sections: Education, Film and Media Studies, Philosophy, and Rhetoric, each of which conducts research and offers study programmes at all academic levels.

A common characteristic of the four sections is the investigation into the basic conditions for human cognition and communication as they find expression in different institutions and media during changing historical and societal circumstances.

The department aims to contribute to the international scholarly discussion in each of its fields at the highest level possible, and to that end participates in several international networks.

We offer several of our degree-programmes in English and also host a large number of international guest students each semester, all of which contribute to the unique international atmosphere of the department.
