General information on language and communication studies
Language, communication and international skills are key competences in all fields of work. The aim of the practical language and communication studies at the university of applied sciences is fluency in various interactive situations at work.
A Bachelor’s degree conducted in English includes at least 15 credits of language studies, of which at least 5 credits are English studies and at least 10 credits are Finnish studies. English-taught degree education may also include other studies in Finnish that support employment in Finland.
Language and communication studies are closely linked to other professional studies, which often also include various international projects. Students can increase their international competence in many ways throughout their studies.
From the spring semester 2022, it will be possible to take preparatory language and communication studies that support studies at HAMK. Versatile language and communication studies are also available through the KiVANET language teaching network of Finnish higher education institutions and the CampusOnline network of Finnish universities of applied sciences.
