Lehrinhalte
  • According to publications of the World Health Organization "social determinants of health (SDH) are the conditions, in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life." Therefore social & welfare systems are closely linked to a society's health out-comes and social management is one of the core competences for future graduates. This course provides an insight into the close re-lationship of social & health systems and it provides students technical tools for the managing services of public interest in a wider sense.

    Please be aware that this course requires high level of proficiency in English language. All local students have passed an English language test with at least 90 TOEFL points (internet based) or comparable tests.
