The Faculty of Applied Social Sciences (FAS) is the second largest Faculty of FHWS with over 1.500 students and six courses of studies. Size, diversity and interdisciplinarity offers students a range of studies covering the broadness of the respective discipline and allowing both differentiation and specialisation.

The undergraduate academic education in the Bachelor course of studies can be scientifically enhanced in the consecutive full-time Master course of studies and completed within doctorate cooperation. An auditorium building only renovated in 2013, a separate new educational facility for small-, training- and study groups, own TV- and radio studios, 3 computer pools, eLearning courses, library, as well as state-of the-art equipment provide optimal study conditions.

A both scientifically sound and practice-oriented teaching, as well as the close cooperation with the practice ensure optimal vocational preparation. Own practice-oriented research and their transfer into practice provide its basis. The Faculty supports the efforts of the University in the field of internationalisation and profiling.

The Faculty offers the course of studies listed below:

  • Health Management (M.B.A)
  • Media Management (B.A)
  • Nursing- and Health Management (B.A)
  • Social Work (B.A)
  • Social Work (M.A)
  • Music Therapy for people with special needs and dementia (M.A.)
  • International Social Work with Refugees and Migrants (M.A.)
