In the undergraduate program the students can attain expertise through a unique combination of courses in economics, social sciences and law, and qualify themselves for professional work related to labor market policy. This also includes training for skills according to the Social Security Statute Book II (SGB II), which is administered by the Federal Employment Agency in cooperation with the municipalities.
- The Labor Market Management program prepares students for work in employment agencies in the areas of placement and integration, maintenance of benefits and management of resources.
- The Career Guidance and Case Management program prepares students for work in career guidance and orientation, as well as work concerning career related case management.
Specific emphasis is placed on the Federal Employment Agency as a public service provider within the framework of the social security system of the Federal Republic of Germany.
The degree programs are characterized by modular structures, flexible study approaches, short periods of study and, in particular, by a consistent practice-based orientation. This is ensured through internships that are integrated into the curriculum.
The degree programs are designed so that acquired skills are also applicable outside of the Federal Employment Agency. Similar expert knowledge is also needed particularly by municipalities, non-profit and private funders, which play a central role in implementing labor market policies, as well as staffing agencies.
