New in Multilingual Communication with focus on Digital Media Education: you can now add FFL to your course.
or several years now, the Master’s degree in Multilingual Communication has welcomed numerous Belgian and foreign students. Since September 2021, we have opened our doors to even more students, as ULiège offers a new Master’s degree in Multilingual Communication with a specialist focus on “Digital Media Education”.
The courses are mainly given in English, with the obvious exception of the foreign language courses. An even broader welcome to a multilingual audience, attracted not only by this programme, but also our city, our heritage and our culture!
From the beginning of the academic year 2023, students will also have the possibility to take a module in "French as a Foreign Language" (FFL). French will therefore be studied in a transfer approach and for the same amount of credits as the other foreign languages. Two of these language modules must be chosen by each student.

||Taught entirely in English
|Foreign Language Modules
||20 credits per language, students can choose from English, German, Dutch, French (FFL) and Spanish

Communication, Foreign Languages and Media Education: an Interdisciplinary Course Programme
- A high level of specialisation in the field of communication, where digital devices and a multilingual context are combined in all languages.
- A programme designed to teach various audiences to evolve in a complex media universe, where citizens need reference points and beacons to give meaning, whether by reading, producing or organising them, to the digital content that is omnipresent in the professional and private spheres.
... at the Crossroads of Theory and Practice
The two approaches are constantly intertwined. From critical discourse analysis to the creation of devices aimed at increasing the media literacy of audiences, solid practical training complements theoretical reflection, offering a perspective of a discipline that aims to train media and cultural actors capable of meeting the ever-evolving challenges of our time.
Media education is a discipline that has been developed for many years within the Media, Culture and Communication Department, as well as in a transversal way within other partner departments of the Master’s degree. Media and film analysis, visual semiotics, rhetoric, information and communication didactics and digital humanities all come together to influence our research in the field of media literacy, which is at the heart of several scientific and pedagogical projects within the ULiège Faculty of Philosophy and Letters.
