From dispute to dialogue: building bridges with language

Discover the fundamental role of language in health communication

Dialogue, Health and Society focuses on the theoretical and practical role of language in health communication and medical care. In a world of polarization and empowered citizens and patients, dialogue has become indispensable.

You will gain advanced theoretical knowledge about how language is used in real-world contexts ranging from doctor-patient interaction to online debates about vaccination or conversations about sustainable and healthy eating. You will also apply these insights during your internship as a dialogue specialist in organizations such as the WHO, municipal health departments or NGOs.
