YOU ARE NEEDED. STUDY E-COUNSELLING IN EDUCATION.
In the field of medicine, it has been a long time since the topic of e-health, i.e. virtual health counselling, arrived. Now the idea of digitisation is also conquering all other interpersonal areas. The concept of digital education is an absolute trend topic. What is missing are qualified professionals who professionally implement educational counselling in the virtual space. That's where you come in: With your master's degree in E-counselling in Education, you are ready for the digital future.
Do you already have existing educational knowledge from a bachelor's degree or vocational training? Then the E-counselling in Education master's programme is exactly the platform you need to transfer your knowledge into the digital world. In two semesters, you will learn the methods of systemic (e-)counselling in education and profession, as well as the methods of interviewing, counselling and mediation. Your social science research skills are also brought up to date. Self-reflection is another important topic. This enables you to constantly question your educational actions. In numerous role-plays, you will get to know the practice of different counselling situations. After you graduate, you can work in different areas. For example, in further education, in the health and care sector, in educational and counselling institutions or in personnel development.
Information on accreditation and state approval can be found on the sub-page of the degree program.
