Everyone has the right to participate in society. For many people, however, this participation is at risk. Due to disability, chronic illness or social disadvantage, they cannot participate as well themselves. In the worst case, they cannot be part of the modern social life. Recognising these disadvantages and counteracting them is the core competence of the Management of Inclusion and Participation degree programme. Together with others in the social and health care sector, you will acquire the skills to design integration and participation and to evaluate their success.

The special feature of the Management of Inclusion and Participation degree programme at DIT is the high proportion of social, health and medical science as well as educational expertise and the excellent networking with practice partners. The degree programme is unique because it is the first to address the challenges of the Federal Participation Act (BTHG). Graduates have a vision of a society in which all people can participate equally.

career prospects

As a manager of inclusion and participation, you create the framework to enable disadvantaged people to participate in society. You support them in all areas of life and in everything they cannot do on their own. People like you help them to organise their lives independently - so that they can live together with others or integrate into the labour market.

You can promote an inclusive society in different functions:

  • As a manager of institutions, homes or individual teams,
  • As a counsellor for people and families concerned,
  • Through management and organisational activities.

Institutions where you can take on these tasks are:

  • Residential facilities for people of all ages
  • Day care facilities for children, young people, adults and senior citizens
  • Institutions for participation in working life, e.g. workshops, vocational training centres
  • Communal and socio-spatial facilities, e.g. counselling centres, community centres.

You will fulfil all these tasks with a high level of social and communicative competence. Personal qualities that will help you: You are empathetic, can organise well, work in a team and network. If you are also creative, open-minded and think in business terms, you are ideally equipped for all tasks.
