The master's degree programmes at FH Vorarlberg 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 20 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.

Contextual Studies are a module offer, from which the master students and the alumni of the FH Vorarlberg can choose.

What opportunities would you like to make more of?

The Contextual Studies at Vorarlberg University of Applied Sciences (FH Vorarlberg) provide customized courses as part of our master’s degree programmes. It offers students diverse opportunities to pursue personal areas of interest, to do independent work and to push the limits of their knowledge and abilities in research, intercultural contexts and numerous disciplines.

Challenges and opportunities in the Contextual Studies:

Be active and incorporate your own questions and thoughts into your learning and understanding: In the Contextual Studies you can adopt new points of view and unconventional perspectives, discover and reconfigure relationships.

Crossing boundaries and tread new ground: The Contextual Studies allow you to work on current interdisciplinary issues and questions. The topics cover challenges of our working world as well as sustainability issues, but also societal coexistence and social economics, cultural change and value orientations, security and many others.
