Type of Courses

Within the IBCoM (International Bachelor's in Media and Communication) Programme we have different types of courses, namely:

    • Mandatory Courses: Every IBCoM student in that year (1st year (BA-1), 2nd year (BA-2), 3rd year (BA-3) will be taking this course, so it is a large-scale theoretically oriented course. Usually it will have a two-hour lecture and a three-hour tutorial.
    • Research Workshop: These courses are focused on doing research and analysing (self-collected) data. The IBCoM students take these courses to prepare themselves for the Bachelor Thesis (dissertation) in BA-3. The workshop classes exist of max. 25 students.
    • Communication Workshop: In these workshops the students put their communication skills in practice. In some cases there is a lecture, but the focus will be on the three-hour workshops, with max. 25 students.
    • Seminars: IBCoM students choose a few seminars from the many on offer; these are small-scaled (max 25 students) three-hour courses, where theory is in put in a more practical perspective.
    • Elective: Additional courses we offer, that students can choose as an elective.
    • Minor: The Minor exists out of two or three courses that are grouped together according to a certain theme (Communication, Culture and Organizations or Media, Culture and Society). BA-3 students have to take a minor, so the minor courses will be with BA-3 students from other faculties. Note, the Minor courses can be selected individually - so you do not need to take the whole package.
