The KSH Munich sets accents with the wide range of social work ethics and the theological additional qualifications. The student body is actively involved in the design of the university and the range of courses and receives its own "political" time window. The compatibility of study and family is given special consideration in the course.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation

In the degree course in Social Work (BA), the large number of Erasmus students are to be mentioned (more than 10% incoming, approx. 25% outgoings). The International Social Work module offers not only English-taught courses, but also a broad spectrum of study trips in and outside of Europe.
