The Master Program Caritas Science and Christian Social Ethics is research oriented and consecutive. Caritas Science does theological and interdisciplinary research in and reflects on theory and practice of Caritas and other organizations of public, free and private social welfare. Christian Social Ethics offers the framework of theories of justice for basic and situational questions of social ethics. The program serves the students to acquire of specific knowledge and competences in the fields of theology and related disciplines. Students acquire and improve caritas scientific and ethical competences (both individual and social ethics) as well as communicative skills. In addition, the interdisciplinarilly organized program offers knowledge and competences as to theory and practice of social work as well as law and management in the social field. It enables students to do research in this field empirically as well as conceptionally in this field on theological and interdisciplinary bases.

The versions of statutes with relevance to teaching and learning provided on this page by the Department of Legal Affairs (in particular admission and selection regulations as well as subject and examination regulations) are primarily for information purposes. This means that all amendments subsequently agreed upon by the University Senate have been integrated into the respective text of the original statutes; in the case of the examination regulations for bachelor's and master's degree programmes, this generally relates to extracts of the respective examination regulations (framework examination regulations, subject-specific provisions, and appendices).
The greatest care has been taken in writing these versions. Nevertheless, it cannot be entirely ruled out that errors may have occurred. Consequently, it is solely the officially announced statutes and statute amendments that are legally binding, i.e. as published in the Amtlichen Bekanntmachungen der Albert-Ludwigs-Universität Freiburg im Breisgau [de] or, up to the year 2000, in the official gazette of the Baden-Württemberg Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts.
