Commissions

Commissions are work tasks aimed at one or more students. Commissions can also be directed at a specific course, which allows even more students to participate in them. No matter which commission interests you, contact us. We will deliver your request directly to the students themselves or to the teaching and research staff, who will attempt to accommodate the commission to an appropriate course.

Commissions can include various tasks that require linguistic and communicational expertise, e.g. producing or translating texts, plans, producing content, writing different types of texts, organizing small-scale training or courses or presentations.

 If you have these or other tasks in mind, contact us!

Theses

One productive way to cooperate with the students at the Department of Language and Communication Studies is to arrange for one of them to write a thesis that your organization would find useful. Having a thesis written is a great way to obtain new knowledge for your organization and to get to know potential future employees.

There is a myriad of potential topics for theses: communication in working life, language use in the media, marketing communication, possibilities of language training (e.g. immersion courses), fiction and non-fiction literature, translations, international relations and so on. Suggest a topic that interests you!

Internships

If your organization has a need for a language and/or communication expert to do a larger, more specific task, an internship could be the option for you. Internships usually last three full months, but they can last longer as well. Depending on the case, the department may be able to pay a month's salary for the intern. Internships are aimed at graduate students who already possess a wide range of skills acquired through their studies.

Internships can include tasks such as  different communications tasks (e.g. writing press releases or news articles and marketing), content production, translating, interpreting, language planning,language training, personnel management and preparing reports, depending on the particular student's studies and skills.
