Diversities in Youth Care

In this Master's programme, you will learn how diversities such as ethnicity, religion, sex, sexual preference or socio-economic class may influence the kinds of problems children and young people experience. You will learn how they express themselves regarding these issues, and in which ways you need to take these diversities into account as a professional pedagogue.

Gifted Education

Are you interested in the challenges and problems that gifted and talented children and adolescents meet in and outside school? Do you want to play a part in meeting those challenges and solving those problems? The international Master's programme "Gifted Education" is the way to become a specialist in gifted education and care.
