Since 2011, 120 students from more than 30 countries of origin have completed the continuing education programme "musik.welt - Cultural Diversity in Music Education". This Master's programme is application-oriented and teaches a diversity-conscious approach to music in theory and practice. The heterogeneity of the study group as well as learning from and with each other are central components of the programme and enable a change of perspective. Applicants should be interested in getting involved in new things. For example, part of the programme consists of learning a previously unknown instrument. Other subjects include ethnomusicology, music education, community music, project management and many practical music workshops. The further education programme is aimed at all those who work with the medium of music, such as musicians, composers, school teachers, social educators and music mediators, regardless of age and background. The programme is part-time and is also suitable for working professionals. The timetable for the entire programme will be available to the public from April 2022.
