The master’s programme in social work offers you a practice-oriented, scientific training with the specialisation in social space work. The skills obtained will support you in a wide range of vocational fields as a social worker in NPOs, social policy and administration at the state, district, city or municipal level, and in advisory, preventive, coordinative, strategic, organisational and integrative activities.
