In publica commoda

Modularisation is an overriding organisation principle which can be applied independently of degree programme structures and cultures of study. According to a CHE (Centre for Higher Education Development) position paper dated June 2003, modularisation is a process of “shaping courses of study invariably in accordance with the targeted learning outcomes and defining the significance and contribution of every single course with this objective in view”. According to the “Structural regulations for the introduction of Bachelor’s and Master’s degree programmes” [KMK (Conference of Education Ministers) resolution dated 5 March 1999], a mandatory prerequisite for the approval of multi-level degree programmes is the presentation of evidence that they are modularised.
