The graduates gain knowledge about scientific core resources in DDS and can apply them in their professional environment of "Disability Care".

They are familiar with the development of the international philosophical-ethical care debate and know about the gender-specific inequalities and inequities, which are established in traditional social care operations. They are able to develop a productive perspective in contemporary approaches to an "inclusive culture of care" (e. g. Community Care Models), which corresponds to other international models.

They gain an understanding in the basics and conditions of alternative theories to realise inclusive societies and their socio-political models as well as a detailed theoretical and practical introduction to life coaching.

The knowledge is furthermore used to reflect upon their professional identity.

The students concentrate on issues of integration and the recognition of diversity in the areas of gender, age, disability, illness, cultural or religious affiliation. Social methods of inclusion and exclusion, theoretical concepts of action for the normalisation of difference and the production and reconstruction of regular life and learning relations are discussed. The current guiding principles of equal treatment, equal opportunities and anti-discrimination are in the centre of this lecture.
