Overview of all modules 2020-22

Here you find a tabular overview of all modules listed in the chronological order. Please click on the Link for detailed information of the respective module.

A module introduces you to and trains you in a specific topic of work and health. Each module comprises of a preparatory homework called “pre-assignment”, a campus phase, as well as a concluding exam. Each module is provided by a module manager, who is in charge of the module's content, pre-assignment, and exam.

Module examination and assessment

To successfully pass a module, you have to successfully pass the module's preparatory homework (pre-assignment), actively participate during all campus lectures, do all the required readings and/or homework seriously, and pass the exam. 


Almost all the modules are open for external participants. The module C1 and C11 can be attended only by students, who registered for the whole DAS Work+Health program, therefore, they are not open to external participants.

To register for single modules, you are required to return the completely filled in form. You can find the forms and admission criteria under How to apply.
