What comes to mind when you think about your studies at HMKW?
A lot of freedom to try things out and support from all sides.
You acquired a Master of Arts in Convergent Journalism at HMKW Berlin. What is your current job position?
Until recently, I was still a PR manager in the project management of a Berlin agency. Currently, however, I'm a freelancer and do all kinds of creative things around media. This currently ranges from PR to the production of YouTube videos and music for a yet-to-be-announced Hollywood production.
Did you get any further work experiences prior to your current position that you would like to share with us?
Before my graduation at HMKW, I had already worked in several communication agencies and since my high school days I have been working as a musician and DJ with some success.
Why did you decide to study “Convergent Journalism”? And what made you choose HMKW Berlin?
After a bachelor's degree in communications management and several years of agency work in the PR sector, I always had the impression that the industry was not sufficiently familiar with the actual needs of modern journalism. In this respect, a degree in journalism seemed to me to be the most sensible way to expand my qualifications. However, my studies broadened my horizon more than I had expected, so that I now feel at home in all disciplines of media communication.
Which contents of your studies are part of your current job? How do your studies help you in your work routine?
There are many contents that could be named. What is used in practice and what not depends of course on the individual case. The basic understanding of things and the feeling for topics and connections, which you learn during your studies, always helps you in your professional life.
