Module selection

The Master’s degree program is structured modular. The individual modules and their major focal points are listed below. Please see the module guide for more detail on the contents of each course.

The selection of modules must be done at the beginning of your studies and registered via StudOn. Please refer to our step-by-step guide.

You will need to choose all mandatory modules, one of the five mandatory elective modules, one elective module, and one specialization module.

Please note that you will need the approval of the module coordinator for individual modules. Please find further information on StudON.
