Annotation

The Master's degree programme with integrated advanced education is run by the (arch-)bishoprics of Freiburg, Hildesheim, Cologne, Münster and Paderborn and has an overarching orientation towards schools of counselling and therapy. At the various study locations, different focal points are set for in-depth studies. The degree programme also provides sociological, legal and theological framework conditions for counselling. The reflection of a spiritual counselling attitude from the perspective of the Christian conception of man is of particular importance.
