Start of 2020-2021 academic year: Campus is open
Since the corona outbreak, universities all over the world have switched to distance learning. A great alternative, but not ideal when you're just starting your degree. That's why the Communication program is offering 50% of regular contact hours on campus for 1st-year students starting in September this year. You'll come to campus 2 days a week for 6 hours each day. Time to get to know your classmates and lecturers in person. Become familiar with the campus. And develop some group spirit within your class and program. Alongside the on-campus hours you'll have online classes and self-study at home.

What's more, 1 whole year of your studies is devoted to getting international work experience.
What can you do with a communication degree?: Careers
With a Bachelor of Arts in Communication, you’re a qualified communication specialist. You know how to communicate effectively with different target groups.

Students as partners: Dutch way of learning
The atmosphere in a Dutch classroom is quite informal and your lecturers are easy to talk to. In fact, at HAN you’re seen as a partner in the learning process. Class sizes are small and your lecturers encourage you to actively participate in class. To ask questions and give your own opinion. They also stimulate you to be creative and to discover things for yourself.
Communication in numbers
