Master of Arts in Social Innovation


Methodology and Time Schedule


The programme of study consists of assessed course modules that are delivered through a blend of online distance learning and a set of face-to-face sessions held at Danube University Krems. Attendance days will be full days, usually blocks from Mondays to Fridays, to optimise your time and travel efforts.

According to the number of ECTS credits, students must plan for extra workload in addition to these attendance days. Each course module is individually assessed, whereby students will have to demonstrate a range of research skills, including study of literature, critical analysis through reports, group work, oral presentations and/or research proposal development and completion.
A typical module of 6-8 ECTS generally consists of


  • a preliminary online phase for the activation of prior knowledge
  • a face-to-face session combining workshops, discussions and theoretical inputs provided by the lecturers
  • an intermediate phase of work to draw up a learning product
  • a follow-up phase with a final performance assessment


The online phases are accompanied by an online learning platform. This platform will serve as an organizational "switchboard" between the course director and the students, as well as a platform for the exchange of communication and the documentation of joint work.
