Modules 6-9

Modules 6-9 offer an opportunity to specialise in one specific field of social policy.

M 6: Policies
M 7: Research Training / Studies Abroad
M 8: Research Unit I
M 9: Research Unit II

M 6: Policies

Module M6 deepens the theoretical and practical knowledge in selected fields of social policy:

  • Health Care System/Health Care Policy
  • Work and Social Security
  • European Labour Studies


By narrowing the thematic perspective, the module offers many possibilities to profoundly immerse into the dynamics of the respective field and to understand its problems and challenges in a differentiated manner. This helps to analyse in depth the structural transformations and constellations of actors as well as to identify institutional and organizational conditions. This also implies to discuss the political means of the field and its power structure by reflecting and evaluating individual policies. With this specialization, students learn to comment on the current political agenda on the basis of profound scientific knowledge.
