Welcome to the website of the Institute of Linguistics and Communication Studies at RWTH Aachen University - ISK for short.

We are a dynamic, interdisciplinary institute that applies expertise from linguistics and communication science to issues in society, business, and engineering.

Research covers a broad portfolio of topics such as language criticism and public discourse, electronic media and technology communication, technology perception and human-computer interaction, and language and communication in education and work.

The Institute oversees the programs in Linguistics and Communication Studies B.A., Digital Media Communication M.A., and Technology Communication B.Sc./M.Sc., and is involved in the German Teacher Training Program B.A./M.Ed.
