New name – moving towards the brighter future
Fachhochschule Ottersberg (University of applied sciences in Ottersberg) recently changed its name to “Hochschule für Künste im Sozialen, Ottersberg” (University of applied sciences and arts in Ottersberg).
The new name highlights the value, success and relevance of our university. It clearly states our vision and mission that our teaching staff and students always hold to: as artists committing to work for society.
With this spirit is why the university was established 45 years ago and so will it be. We respond to and support the solution finding of today’s social problems. More and more shows that some groups have neither place nor voice in the society. To release people’s creative potential and to help provide them new opportunity to express their thoughts and feeling are what our students learn and experience.
A variety of project works throughout their study brings students closer to the practical scene of social work and in contact with companies, clinics, social as well as pedagogic institutions. In this way they not only can learn from concrete samples, but also are well-prepared to work professionally later on.
In the coming years we plan to offer new programs and further education – for example, the certification as alternative practitioner.
