I chose Mid Sweden University because of the Master by Research programme. No other programme I found gave me as much of a chance to do exactly what I want to do.

My current research project is in the field of political communication and journalism. In that, I try to examine the differing degrees of mediatisation between private commercial and public service TV news during political campaign season.

I think the best thing about my programme is exactly the reason why I chose to study at Mid Sweden University in the first place. I love that I can learn more about specific topics and customise the experience as much as possible to my own preferences, while still staying true to the programme.
