"The Master’s programme have played a very important role in my career choices and opportunities"
Anni Erlandsson's best memory of the Master's programme in Demography is the positive atmosphere at SUDA. Now she is a PhD student at SOFI.
PhD student at SOFI (The Swedish Institute for Social Research).
What did you study prior to entering the Master program in Demography?
Why demography in Stockholm?
I moved to Stockholm right after I graduated from college
in the U.S. and wanted to take a master’s degree here.
I applied to the Multidisciplinary Master’s Program in Demography because it seemed interesting and I thought that my previous studies in political science provided a good background for studies in demography.
What did you like most about studying demography?
The supportive learning environment at the demography unit. The teachers at SUDA were always helpful and answered all my questions during and after classes.
What is the best memory you have of the master program?
I guess it’s the positive atmosphere at SUDA in general. The teachers, together with my peer students in demography, contributed to a good atmosphere in and outside the classroom.
How did Master program in Demography help you realize your professional goals?
I received a lot of positive and constructive feedback during the master’s program, especially on my thesis. I think some of the people at SUDA believed in me more than I did myself. Their support and the well-constructed master’s program have played a very important role in my career choices and opportunities.
How did you like living and working in Stockholm?
Well, I still live in Stockholm and I’m about to start doctoral studies at Stockholm University. Doesn't that say it all?
