Development of Social and Health Services

Study programme profile

This study programme qualifies participants for the development of innovative services in social and healthcare services. Project work is at the centre of the study programme. Three development projects are offered in which cooperation with social and healthcare services organisations is currently being designed and realised.

The development of innovative services requires in-depth skills in social research. The study programme transmits these skills in a specially designed module. Through this, the knowledge acquired in a basic degree is broadened in relation to current challenges in social and healthcare services.

The study programme is designed in an interdisciplinary manner. It is oriented towards graduates of various study programmes in the social and healthcare services. Working in multiprofessional project teams, students practise interdisciplinary thinking and networked action. The structure of the programme ensures continuous reflection and individual learning processes as well as group processes.

The courses include lectures, seminars, excursions, practical work, tutorials and projects. Face-to-face teaching is supplemented successively through virtual work (Stud. IP), the internet, e-mails and e-mail consulting which occurs parallel to the study programme.
