 Master Thesis CS:

Detailed information will be provided during the introduction lecture of the
Research Topics course, but information is already available online at:

Master Communication Studies (CS)
 Master Thesis CS: internal or external research project
 External means collaboration with an organisation or institute, which
may provide a research context, case study or research population.
 Examples:
 When, for example, researching consumer behaviour regarding
the effects of manipulations in advertising material or the intention
to use / adopt new (social) media applications in consumer
environments, a research context can often be found without
involving an external organisation.
 When, on the other hand, (for example) researching aspects of
internal communication or new (social) media usage within an
organisation or between employees of an organisation, the
involvement of an external organisation becomes more obvious.
