Academic Education

Study location Fürstenwalde

Our vocational school Paula Fürst is expanding its educational offer in the social field. It is possible to study at Fürstenwalde for the first time. This makes Fürstenwalde a university location.

A strong cooperation partner is required for such a project. We found this with the University of Applied Sciences for Medium-sized Companies (Fachhochschule des Mittelstands) or FHM in short. We will become the FHM university location. The physical classes are taking place on our premises and are carried out by our advisors.

The courses of study Social Pedagogy and Management | Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) and Vocational Pedagogy | Master of Arts (M.A.) are the building blocks in the educational offering of our school with which it further strengthens and expands its social pedagogical profile.

Social Pedagogy and Management | Bachelor of Arts (B.A.)

2 Models of Study

As a distance learning course, it is offered in two ways. This should make the course attractive for both students from our vocational school and external students. The course can be studied either in combination with the vocational training or while continuing the professional work. There will be an integrative and a consecutive study concept.

1. Integrative Study Concept – 3 Degrees in 4 Years

Using the integrative study model, students acquire the following qualifications within four years:

  • State-approved nursery school teacher
  • Bachelor of Arts in Social Pedagogy and Management
  • State-recognized social pedagogue

1. Consecutive Study Concept – Shortened Study Duration

In just 2 years to the Bachelor of Arts in Social Pedagogy and Management by crediting of vocational training content. The consecutive model is an offer for nursery school teachers and curative nurses.

The students enter the course after completing their vocational training. It does not matter how long you have been working in your profession or whether you have just started working.

During their two-year distance learning course, students continue their professional work and come to our vocational school at fixed times. Due to the shortened training and study time, the students save one year compared to a regular full-time study at another university.

Vocational Pedagogy | Master of Arts (M.A.)

The part-time distance learning program M.A. Vocational Pedagogy is aimed at people with a completed university degree (B.A. or diploma) as well as at least one year of professional experience – ideally in the health care industry, a social profession or a similar field – who want to qualify for entry into a teaching or lecturing position for health care, nursing or educator colleges or for a management position in academies, (further) educational institutions or in institutions of general adult education.
