- The international profile rests on the standard of curricular content and practical qualification that students will acquire to work professionally and interculturally in both countries as well in Europe and globally.
The curriculum content will include broad socio-political policies that have intercultural implications in Europe today. There will be emphasis on skills development and exposure to cutting edge models in practice by social organizations in the social work sector in Germany and the UK. Students will have the professional skills and knowledge to address problems and issues related to children, young adults, families and their communities.
