M.A. - organisation
The principles of self-determination and organisation are integrated into the MA programme and help the students achieve a high form of competence while attending these courses. Knowledge in form of advanced organisational and self reflective design tasks is turned into a part of the course of studies. Naturally the students will not be left alone with these special requirements and challenges. They can rely on a very well accompanied system which helps them organise their course of studies.
For the MA programme you need 120 ECTS credits, which have to be acquired within semester clusters of 30 ECTS credits with a semester workload of 900 hours. The internationalisation of single modules by integrating external modules up to 30 ECTS credits is possible and plays an important role. The examination board decides over the accreditation of these external modules.
The workload of the core project’s module covers about 60% of the individual semester workload. This contact time is divided into three units: 15% percent is accounted for plenary sessions, 60% for individual support of the project development and 25% for preparation and post processing in study groups. The study groups are divided depending on the thematic orientation of the projects. In particular cases the contact time can also be used for individual support. The plenary sessions can also be held in groups and are scheduled during the semester according to the circumstances and the project-specific requirements.
The organisational plan will be settled in a course time schedule. The workload of the theory and context modules covers about 40% of the individual semester workload.The MA programme of the GJD Department provides a pool of specialized courses from which the students can choose. The students are responsible for selecting their majors during their course of studies. On the other hand, the development of interaction between the different modules and integration of the content is a systematic and integral part of the whole programme.
This integration in form of defining one’s personal style within a relevant social context is of important significance. Out of the qualifying and competence units of this programme, which accompany the core project module, structured contributions will give feed back to enable the development of high skills, main topics and projects.
