Communication and Media Sciences

[Translate to English:]

Welcome to the homepage of the Department of Communication and Media Sciences at the Institute of Social Sciences at the TU Braunschweig.

In our research, we mainly focus on the current and socially relevant aspects of digital communication and science communication from the perspective of media users.

We address questions like: What influence do the changing communication environments have on people's everyday lives? How do social media affect individual communication and perceptions, as well as social relationships?

We are particularly interested in the relationship between science and the public and (digital) science communication from the media users' perspective. Our goals are to reflect on society and to build awareness about the societal and social influence of innovation and digital media. We also aim to give new impulses for the discourse between science and the public.
