Studerende fra Medievidenskab på Aarhus Universitet

Studerende
De studerende er alle fra bachelorårgangen på Medievidenskab, Aarhus Universitet. I faget Mediesystemanalyse, der har til formål at give de studerende færdigheder i teoretisk- og metodisk reflekteret analyse af mediesystemer og deres udvikling, er de blevet udfordret med cases fra erhvervslivet, de skal forsøge at løse. Frem for en teoretisk tilgang til faget, har de herved mulighed for at få en mere praktisk, hands-on indsigt i en given medievirksomheds kommunikative og organisatoriske forhold samt arbejde innovativt med medieaktuelle udfordringer i erhvervslivet.
