The Master's degree programmes at Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FHV) build on the following three essential elements:

1. Core studies:

The compulsory fundamental subjects in core studies establish the specialist academic skills and support your professional competences.

2. Specialisation studies: 

In the chosen field of specialisation, you will enhance and specialise – depending on the degree programme – your professional access based on your interests and career goals. 

3. Contextual Studies:

In a selection of more than 40 modules, you cross the boundaries between:

  • Disciplines and schools of thought (interdisciplinarity),
  • Cultures, languages and countries (internationality) and
  • Current knowledge and the future (research and development).

Your degree programme takes you through all three basic elements. This process allows you to deepen and broaden your skills while letting you incorporate your personal interests in your programme of study.

We can't be defined by a sole concept, everybody has several faces and inner motivations that seem to pull us to opposite sides. A part of me is an engineer using reason, structure, order. Another part is an anarchist looking for joy, beauty and freedom. ... That's why I decided to enrol "Performative Interventions - Self Expression, Observation, Staging", to get a different view and break the routine.

Joaquim Font, Master International Management and Leadership

Contextual Studies are a module offer, from which the Master's students and the alumni of FHV can choose.

The Contextual Studies at FHV is a flexible part of your Master’s degree programme. It offers you a wide range of opportunities to pursue personal areas of interest, to do independent work and to push the limits of your knowledge and abilities in many ways: in research, in other cultures or in other disciplines.
