The University

Founded in 2009, the YMCA University of Applied Sciences (German: “CVJM-Hochschule”) is a young and vibrant institution resting on the solid foundation of the prominent YMCA movement with over 45 million members in 130 countries. The German YMCA (in German: CVJM) is the largest German Christian youth organization with over 330 000 members.

The YMCA University Kassel (YU) is a private and fully state-accredited private institution according to German law and standards of higher education. Moreover, all of the programs offered at YU individually went through a rigorous accreditation process. This assures their high quality and gives graduates sound and reputable degrees recognized worldwide.

To ensure the requirements of the high German and state-mandated standards of professional social work as well as religious education and related fields, YU employs a multi-disciplinary, student-centered approach to teaching and learning. It acknowledges and employs highly effective, contemporary pedagogical models focusing not only on the provision of professional methodological competences but also personal social and spiritual growth. YU seeks to do this in open dialogue advocating for inclusiveness while fully endorsing its Christian identity.

We educate 223 students within the integrated on campus Bachelor program “Social Work and Religious Pedagogy”, furthermore 118 students study our online-based Bachelor program “Social Work”. Individual support and structured campus activities characterize our concept of "living and learning together”, which is designed to connect formal and informal modes of learning for a deeper and more meaningful learning experience for each student and their individual learning needs and styles.

Should you decide to carry out a visiting lectureship at YMCA University in Kassel you will enjoy broad support in terms of registration formalities, finding accommodation, integration into the teaching staff, facilities, etc.
