A masters is the first level of graduate coursework and can be obtained after you receive a bachelor’s degree. Earning a masters usually requires two years of full-time study, which amounts to 36 to 54 semester credits.
Communication courses enhance students’ skills in this specific area and prepares them for a wide range of careers. The skills used throughout this process may be used in a wide variety of career fields, offering students an unparalleled freedom when it comes to selecting a job.

Master's Program - Environmental Communication and Management
Practical work in the field of natural resource management and sustainable development also involves communication. How can we manage conflicting interests between people and organizations?
Communication plays an important role in the facilitation of sustainable management of natural resources and environmental issues. In the ECM program, we learn how to understand communication processes, to create communicative strategies for environmental changes, organize collective action and mediate in environmental conflicts in a constructive way.
To work in practice with environmental change and sustainable development mean to work with people and communication. Communication is involved in all environmental issues: industries’ adaptation of environmental technology, governmental protection of wildlife, international governmental agreements etc. Companies, governmental agencies, and environmental organizations are demanding people with professional skills in environmental communication. To facilitate sustainable development, society needs to know about e.g. plants, soils and water. But that is not enough. We also need to know how to coordinate different resource users, how to motivate consumers to adopt an environmental technology, and how to manage environmental conflicts....

ICT Innovation is a master’s programme which combines technical competencies with skills in innovation and entrepreneurship. The programme has a strong focus on integrating education, research and business modules in its curriculum, and with active industry involvement.
ICT Innovation at KTH
There are six tracks offered through the programme.
Autonomous Systems KTH (AUSY)
Data Science KTH (DASE)
Digital Media Technology (DMT)
Embedded Systems (ES)
Human-Computer Interaction and Design (HCID)
Internet Technology and Architecture (ITA)
A key component in all specialisations of ICT Innovation is the integrated combination of a master’s degree project (30 ECTS), an “internship” (which should be included in the degree project credits) and an I&E project (6 ECTS). The industry-based degree project (typically integrated with the "internship") is together with the I&E minor well integrated with the technical majors....

Communication Networks have evolved dramatically over recent decades. Accommodating the data traffic generated by anticipated billions of users and trillions of digital devices necessitates continuous technological evolution. Novel internet and wireless infrastructure will be needed to cater for these challenging and unprecedented growth and performance characteristics. The KTH master’s programme in Communications Systems will prepare you for a career in such an essential field for our society.
Communication Systems at KTH
The programme takes a holistic view of the internet infrastructure together with its services and applications and covers the topics required to develop communication systems for the next generation. The programme also covers novel concepts and topics, the current trends on the internet such as cloud computing, software-defined networking, 5G mobile network technology, and the Internet-of-Things. Students will also learn about the fundamental design principles behind the internet, which has enabled explosive growth and has, in turn, stimulated the introduction of new business ideas and ventures....

The program is designed to provide skills required by adaptable, critically aware, communications workers in the exciting modern communications environment, which requires fluency in the use of strategic storytelling, content production, and visual design.
A one-year Master's programme of 60 credits, Strategic Communication is a programme designed for students with different subject backgrounds within the wide field of communication. Bringing together different skills, students develop a critical understanding of, and competence to implement, strategic communication. By strategic communication we mean professional communication aimed at satisfying long-term organisational and community goals....

Communication for Development is an interdisciplinary field of study and practice, combining studies on culture, communication and development and integrating them with practical fieldwork. It explores the use of communication – both as a tool and as a way of articulating processes of social change – within the contexts of globalisation.
In this programme, where the form of study strives to be conducive to the course content, progression lies in the group dynamic process as well as in the coursework itself. The multidisciplinary nature of the subject means that the same content should provide in-depth knowledge for students with different backgrounds. One major point of this pedagogical approach is to bring together different experiences. The group diversity should allow students to deepen their knowledge of their own major as well as gain a sufficient overview based on the academic backgrounds and practical experiences of other students. This will allow them to be able to work both interdisciplinary and transcultural in their future professions....
