The Social Work degree at our university offers a scientifically funded and practice-orientated training in the broad vocational field of Social Work. During their studies, students acquire the necessary subject-specific and key qualifications for an independent and a responsible practice in Social Work. Students will also learn to use their knowledge of fundamental scientific principles to solve methodological problems. In particular, the degree qualifies its graduates to plan, carry out, evaluate and reflect upon complex developments in the field of Social Work. Alongside the vocational skills taught, the degree also lays the necessary groundwork for higher qualifications in the field of further practice and research.
The Bachelor Social Work degree is completely modular. This means that all courses are offered in the form of modules. One module is one complete entity with regards to contents and time. The contents and competences (both subject-specific and general) that students should learn and acquire are outlined for each module. Every module concludes with one or more oral or written examinations relating to the course.
The credit points for each module are defined according to the European Credit Transfer System. These credits represent the amount of work required to successfully pass a module.
Our Bachelor degree aims to establish a range of perspectives for later vocational practice within the broad field of Social Work. This is achieved by the acquirement of a broad foundation of universal qualifications. On the other hand, personal aptitudes, competences and future aims of our students are given a special focus during the specialised part of the course.
As an internationally orientated course, looking past the national picture is an important part of the degree. As well as the international nature of the course, the offerings in the field of creative media deserve a special mention. Here a multitude of courses relating to art, handiwork, music, sport, new media and media pedagogy are offered.
