The standard period of study for the master's degree is three semesters. Within the framework of the Master's program, in-depth knowledge of the German social benefits system and the European framework conditions is imparted, taking into account various areas of social law, in particular social insurance law. In addition, the law governing the provision of services is addressed, which deals with the often contractual legal relationships between service providers, providers and beneficiaries. In addition, the fundamentals of business management and organizational development and design are taught in economic and social science courses. The master's module focuses on the master's thesis, which deals with a legal issue. The module is concluded with a colloquium related to the thesis.

The types of performance that can be considered include presentations, term papers, written examinations or oral examinations. Due to the cooperation with the University of Applied Sciences Fulda, the courses take place once a week on the premises of the University.

The standard period of study can be extended by one semester by imposing requirements of up to 30 credits for graduates of a six-semester or a non-law/non-social science bachelor's degree program. The requirements can be attended parallel to the master's courses.
