The Communication Science Study Programme leads alumni to work in various industrial sectors in the field of communication. The curriculum is designed to provide knowledge as well as skills that have been adapted to the needs of the work industry (DUDIKA/ Business World, Industry World, and the World of Work). Tracer studies for alumni and users are carried out regularly to obtain data related to alumni's workforce and work abilities. These results are then used as the basis for mapping the competencies of graduates and evaluating the curriculum applied in order to update the needs of the world of work. The following are the results of a study from a tracer study to alumni that the Communication Science Study Programme team has carried out.
