The job opportunities for communication scientists are good, following from the results of a survey we distributed among our Bachelor's and Master's alumni. The results of the most recent study (executed in December 2015, N = 288). This study shows that respondents that look for a job right after graduation, on average find a job in the field of Communication Science within 4 months. We will soon publish a new study with more up-to-date results. A summary of the 2015 report can be found under "Job examples of alumni".
