We offer graduates with a vocational baccalaureate (Fachabitur) or high school diploma (Abitur) and good grades in German, mathematics and politics/economics the opportunity to complete the dual study programme for a Bachelor of Arts in Public Administration - i.e. the higher non-technical civil service career path. The theoretical content (legal and business subjects, social sciences and some elective modules) is taught at the Hessian University of Public Management and Security in Kassel (HöMS). Among other things, modules such as methods, administrative action, economic action and framework conditions of public administration are taught here.
During the practical semesters, you gain exciting insights into different areas of the district administration. In the last semester, you have to write your academic thesis. Here, a problem from practice is worked on and then defended in an oral examination (colloquium). During the course of study, students are initially appointed as civil servants and may call themselves inspector candidates.
You should enjoy dealing with laws and be interested in teamwork. Of course, a great willingness to learn and perform is a prerequisite. You should also enjoy dealing with citizens seeking advice.
