In Module M7-P students pursue a small research study during an internship in an organization of the welfare sector or in an academic institution. This research should take into account scientific as well as practical aspects. The research training will be accompanied by a compact course subsequent to the internship in which outcomes and experiences will be discussed and evaluated.
The main aim is to prepare students for positions in the administration on the local, regional, national or international level, as well as in non-governmental or private institutions, but also for positions in academic institutions.
During the internship, students will apply the theoretical knowledge they gained during their previous semesters to their own study or to a project-related study at a social policy or academic institution. The concrete tasks and contents should be communicated clearly between the institution and the intern before the beginning of each internship.
