Continuing Education Programme in Library and Information Studies / Basic Course

The Continuing Education Programme in Library and Information Studies combines classic teaching methods with innovative electronic types of learning (blended learning) and thus makes it possible to take the programme part-time and combine it with working.
  •   During classroom modules, our instructors impart theoretical fundamentals in group work, presentations, discussions and with case studies.
  •   During preparatory and follow-up phases, students work independently on practical topics with the help of online tools.
  •   During the internship, you can advance the knowledge gained in the classes. You improve your chances entering the job market and have networking opportunities home and abroad.
  •   During the project, you will learn how to work with concepts and tools of project management to plan and implement a practical task in the team.
  •   For writing the Master’s Thesis you deal with methods and techniques of scientific work. You work on a scientific question and argue independently and conclusively for your theses.
