Our dual bachelor’s degree programme in Social Security Management (BA) offers an overview of the social security systems in Germany. Here, the focus of the study at the Hochschule Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences (H-BRS) is on statutory accident insurance in relation to organisation, funding and prevention, as well as rehabilitation and compensation services. A study contract with a statutory accident insurance company is required.

Students graduate with the academic degree of Bachelor of Arts (BA). The goal of the programme is to qualify students for higher-level roles within social insurance companies, in particular with statutory accident insurance companies.
