The subject of the study program is the combination of in-depth educational science knowledge with new approaches to a market-oriented and sustainable pedagogy. The students analyze current social problem areas and reflect on their consequences for educational science. They acquire knowledge in the management of educational processes and structures as well as in the planning, implementation and evaluation of projects.
