What is the module library?
In the same way as the economy attaches importance to qualified and flexible employees, incoming students increasingly appreciate the flexibility to develop a personalized profile on their own. In particular, this lets working students consider the individual requirements in their specific professional field.
Goodbye school! Your degree programme also involves studying on your own – and the possibility of selecting content in your field. Individual responsibility and a programme based on your interests.
Strengthening your strengths
Where will you place yourself?
In the core curriculum of the university’s programmes, you will systematically increase and deepen your expertise and professional knowledge. And beyond that? What are your other strengths? Are you a sales whiz who likes to work in an international setting? Are you a budding entrepreneur who likes to pursue an original business idea? Do you want a career in research? Are you interested in design? Do you have hidden artistic talent or do you want to develop your abilities by interacting with people? Do you want to know more about technical issues? Would you like to increase your technical knowledge or train your leadership qualities? Or would you like to enhance your profile with knowledge of psychology?
Our module library for the master’s degree programme at the FH Vorarlberg, with over 20 modules in total, caters to all of these interests and more. Assume responsibility for your personal academic path. With the knowledge you choose.
Design your own curriculum
What is the benefit for you?
Choose subjects according to your professional and personal goals, interests and inclinations. In this way, you design your academic path on your own and independently.
Furthermore, you will broaden your horizons in collaboration with students from other areas. Several courses offer insight into new disciplines and perspectives. Others, in joint seminars and projects, encourage an understanding for the way of speaking and thinking in other disciplines. The inclusion of researching lecturers facilitates direct access to ideas in research and current scientific discoveries.
The module library helps you refine an interesting personal profile for yourself.
What maxim could guide me in the decision?
- Besides the standard curriculum, I have a range of subjects that allow me to specialise in particularly interesting fields or attain qualifications relevant to my profession.
- My choice will lead me directly to the laboratories of research centres. Here I will meet people that pursue new and unconventional ideas in their profession and implement them.
- In lectures, I will come into contact with students from other disciplines. Joint projects and discussions will give me the opportunity not only to develop new friendships, but also the opportunity to experience the thinking and the working hypotheses in other disciplines.
