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."

"I look back on my experience with the master's program in Communication Science with a lot of positivity because it has brought me so much. It has given me a strong basis of knowledge and experience that well prepared me for the professional field. Not only did I learn how to work in a structured manner and take different aspects of communication into account, but I also gained confidence in my role as a professional and learned to deliver results most efficiently. I work as a Development Officer at the Diplomatische Akademie Wien (Vienna School of International Studies) and am mainly responsible for the academy's social media and online presence. I still apply the learnings from my study in my everyday work, and I think I have managed well to utilize the benefits of this program to the full extent."
