Classroom events at the university alternate with phases of self-study. These are covered both with conventional teaching/learning materials and with e-learning. Time and location-independent learning is thus ensured to a large extent. The Saxon school vacations are lecture-free. This ensures a good compatibility of family and studies.
The Bachelor's program takes into account the special situation of working students by limiting attendance times at the university to two weekends per month and a one-week attendance phase (block event) at the end of the semester. As a rule, the attendance events take place twice a month on Fridays from 17:00 to 21:00 and on Saturdays from 08:30 to 14:30. The monthly attendance time thus comprises 24 course hours (of 45 minutes each). A separate schedule is prepared for each semester. The dates of the attendance times are known early and in advance, so that one's own professional activities can be planned well.
The combination of theory and practice is an elementary component of the study concept. Through your parallel professional activity, the opportunity for practical application of your acquired theoretical knowledge from the study of vocational education is already integrated, so you do not need to complete external internships. Our practice-oriented teaching will take up application examples from your everyday professional life in practice transfer and reflection seminars.
Upon successful completion of the program, you will receive an internationally recognized Bachelor of Arts degree in "Social Pedagogy and Management" and the title "State-recognized social pedagogue".
