What is it like to study Communication Science? You can meet with current students in person or through Skype to talk about their personal experiences in studying Communication Science and their student life in Amsterdam.
Hello! I'm Mohita Ghosal, a current student of the Masters in Communication Science at the University of Amsterdam. I'm of mixed Danish-Indian descent and spontaneously moved to Amsterdam a few years ago. I have now decided there is nowhere better for me to live (Amsterdam has a way of persuading people to stay as I'm sure you will soon see). I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and a professional background in Communication, Events and specifically, Advertising. The University of Amsterdam has provided an immersive and flexible environment for me to pursue my communication interests while also building a strong sense of academic-family!
Joining a university can be exciting and overwhelming in equal parts - especially given the global Covid19 pandemic that has changed so much about how we study (and live). I'm here for you to ask me any and all questions you might have about the Masters in Communication Science. I'm also here if you just want to have a chat about what life is like in Amsterdam (off-campus and on-campus) and to help you work through any issues so you can focus on being excited about attending University! Feel free to get in touch about anything at all, I promise I'm very friendly and if you need one, a pretty great problem solver!
Hey everyone, I'm Timothy, and I am currently doing my Research Master's in Communication Science at the University of Amsterdam. I am from Germany, but I already did my Bachelor's at the UvA in the PPLE Program (Politics, Psychology, Law, and Economics). Therefore, I have lived here for multiple years already. After my first three years in this beautiful city, I decided that I don't want to leave and stay for my Master's.
It took me a lot of time and many conversations to figure out what I want to study. I was undecided until the very end, but I am happy where I ended up. Having gone through this painful decision-making process myself already, maybe I can make yours easier. If you have any questions about the Communication Science Masters, or about studying in Amsterdam in general, please feel free to contact me!
