The Department of Communication will not tolerate plagiarism, copying or active or passive collaboration in this type of dishonest behaviour in papers written by our students. The penalty for plagiarism will be immediate failure of the course. Furthermore, the University will initiate proceedings against the student that could lead to his/her expulsion from the Master.

We consider plagiarism to be the use of someone else's words without referencing the source or including the information in quotation marks or a block quote; using someone else's ideas without referencing the source or copying papers written by other students.
