Programme structure

Theory and practice alternating

The online degree programme at WAM is not an ordinary degree programme like those offered at large universities or universities of applied sciences. Instead of a weekly timetable with often more than ten parallel subjects per semester, the semesters at WAM are divided into clearly defined module blocks. These blocks each last six weeks and are divided into a three-week theoretical and practical phase. Two subjects are taught in parallel per module block.

This teaching concept enables a strong concentration on certain thematic study focuses and ensures an intensive and focussed examination of the respective modules. While the theory phase of each module block teaches the basics, theoretical approaches, backgrounds and knowledge, the practical phase is designed to apply what has been learnt and implement it in practical tasks. In this way, a direct link can be established between theory and practice.
