In particular, because of social inequality and discrimination, people and groups with diversity characteristics, such as disability or immigrant background, often have limited access to health care. There is also a worldwide link between poverty and health. The students of the Bachelor Degree Program in Health and Diversity learn to build structures in a theoretical and practice-oriented way, which promote the participation of disadvantaged persons and groups in the health and social system and specifically support persons with diversity traits through health-related information and counselling services. The conceptual development, practical implementation and theory-based evaluation of target group-specific prevention offers characterise future work at the intersection between health and education from a perspective of diversity. The bachelor's program 'Health and Diversity' comprises a total of six semesters including the bachelor thesis and a practical semester, which can also be completed abroad.
