Master of Arts / Part-Time

Curative Education: Development, Research, Leadership

How can people with special needs be guided and supported in the best possible way? How should social and therapeutic processes be structured? How can the situation be researched holistically? What conditions in organisations and society enable individual participation and inclusion?

These questions are the focus of the Master's Programme Curative Education, which combines theories and concepts of curative education and social therapy with hands-on projects and art.

The in-service degree programme combines professional experience and scientific reflection. Students become qualified to support the developmental processes of people with special needs as individuals, socially, and at the community level. The degree course focuses on the following research traditions and methods: quantitative and qualitative research methods, hermeneutics, phenomenology, participatory research and inclusive research.
