Different social fields of action - such as family, education, culture, language and religion - are addressed, as are questions of identity and foreignness. The degree comprises 14 compulsory modules and a compulsory elective area, which allows students to set their own individual focus. Both international study and practical placements can be integrated into the degree course. The degree course can be taken as a full-time and part-time course. The degree qualifies graduates in particular for a wide range of coordinating, conceptual, advisory and managerial activities in the field of migration and refugees.
