"I chose the master’s program Communication Science at the University of Vienna, because it’s one of the very few research focused Communication Studies programs in Europe. I like that we have the possibility to conduct our own research projects in the second and third semester and enjoy being in a small and very international group of students, which allows for super interesting and valuable insights."
