The degree programme is a practice-oriented vocational training at the higher education level. There is a balanced combination of theory and practice. This balance is achieved through self-directed, experiential, cooperative and problem-oriented learning and corresponding teaching and learning methods.
Through select areas of activity and case examples, you acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes that clarify the typical, the legitimate and the comprehensive interconnections of social work.
The study programme has an international orientation: guest students from partner universities around the world, the opportunity to complete a semester in an institution in another country, short term study programmes and more are available to help you acquire intercultural competences. English is integrated as a language of instruction.
Intensive communication between teaching staff and students and enhanced cooperation among students are important factors that support your ability to criticise, reflect and argue.
The close connection between theory and practice is a foundation for the entire programme.
The following methods are strengthened and developed throughout the programme:
