The Continuing Education Programme 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 will impart theoretical fundamentals in group work, presentations, discussions and 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 for 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 will deal with methods and techniques of scientific work. You work on a scientific question and argue independently and conclusively for your theses.
