Social Work and Health in the context of Social Cohesion (M.A.)

The master degree course “Social Work and Health in the Context of Social Cohesion" is offered as both a full-time (4 semesters) course and also as a part-time course (6 semesters). The combination of a professional recognition year (Berufsanerkennungsjahr) or part-time employment with the project- and practice-oriented master course as a part-time variant is particularly practical. Support from the course management for the implementation of part-time work in practice may follow if needed.

In your application, we ask that you clearly indicate if it’s a part-time or a full-time course which is sought.
