About the study programme
The Master’s degree programme in Social Work focusing on Community Psychiatry is a part-time, consecutive study programme in the social sciences for university graduates working in the field of community psychiatry.
The aim of the Master’s programme is to provide practitioners in the field of psychiatry with further academic training by systematically developing their theoretical and methodical skills. It equips them with scientific and research-related skills and with organisational and change management competences. This prepares them for leadership positions in professional practice and systematically develops existing leadership skills. The Master’s degree can lead to a doctoral programme.
Two-thirds of the programme consists of online study and one-third of campus-based study at Fulda University. The campus-based courses take place four times a semester, mostly on Fridays and Saturdays. A community learning platform (OLAT) is used to post online modules (texts, abstracts, links, diagrams, media) and allows various forms of interaction for teachers and students.
