Upon successful completion of the course, students:
- are able to design and carry out internal and external work, participation and information processes, as well as the professional scientific discourse at the international level;
- know how to communicate and negotiate professionally with individuals, groups, organizations and social movements. This also involves negotiating results and presenting difficult concepts through appropriate presentation techniques and conveying different target groups;
- can establish partnerships and set up and control techniques of conflict management.
Students independently design and manage projects which will make a contribution to the development and improvement of the university community. Different project types are to foster the students' commitment to community goals. Depending on the scope of the projects, they will either be carried out individually or in groups. The projects can be carried out within the university or the local environment. Students can choose a project and have to manage it independently in accordance with pre-defined criteria.
