Study Orientation Weeks at the Faculty of Society and Economics

In addition to courses in the fields of communication & environment, technology & bionics and life science, the Rhein Waal University of Applied Sciences also offers subjects in the area of society and economy.

In times of social media and various international and social crises, the focus on people and our coexistence is more important than ever. The Faculty of Society and Economics, as the largest faculty at HSRW, deals with these aspects in various areas. We focus on interpersonal issues, which are dealt with in the Bachelor of Arts degree programs in Childhood Education, Sustainable Tourism or Gender & Diversity.

In addition, we also offer business administration (Bachelor of Arts International Business and Management), tax law (Bachelor of Arts International Taxation & Law) and internationally oriented courses (Bachelor of Arts International Relations) that will help you to gain a foothold in your future professional life . Particular attention is paid to taking into account the changing times and keeping up to date with every course of study.

Experience business and taxation

As part of the weeks of study orientation, we cordially invite you to our event "Experience Business and Taxation" on January 18th, 2023. Up close and in direct exchange, you not only get to know the courses better, you also get a deeper insight into your future studies. What does it mean to study? How do you experience a lecture or a seminar? What does it even mean to follow a lecture or take part in a seminar? All these questions will be answered in this interactive event.

All students applying for a bachelor's degree in International Business and Management, B.A. or International Taxation and Law, B.A. at the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences are cordially invited to take part in this event.

"Study something with politics and society..."?!

How does our coexistence work? If you want to investigate this question during your studies, then get to know the courses "International Relations, B.A." and "Gender and Diversity, B.A.". In International Relations we take a look at how economic, political and legal dimensions shape international relations. Gender and Diversity considers living together within a society and questions existing structures. In this event we will look together at how we do this at the university and take the first steps of our own investigations.

We are happy to welcome all students who are interested in studying for a bachelor's degree in International Relations, B.A. or Gender and Diversity, B.A. at the Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences.
