In the four semesters of the degree programme, you can expect courses on the basics (basic modules) and on individual subject-specific specialisations (in-depth modules), as well as a Master's thesis as your final degree. The courses take place all day on Fridays and Saturdays, depending on the choice of electives also on other weekdays (study and work).
