What did you learn at ZU that is useful to you in your everyday work today?

"In the course of my CCM studies, I was inspired not only by media theory, but also by the sociology of knowledge, cultural studies and qualitative approaches. Prospective doctoral students, visiting scholars and established professors all contributed to this, as did the selection of their seminar readings. Understanding science as a milieu, situation potential and field of work was well communicated to me. Taking art seriously as a method of observing and questioning society is another learning.

When I look back on my ZU days today...

"...I see a university under construction whose strength definitely lay in improvisation. Teaching was closely aligned with the departments and students were given an exploratory approach to scientific texts. I found the exchange across study programme boundaries very lively and enriching. Even if structures and campuses appear more established today, I hope that ZU has retained some of this improvisational culture."
