A central task of social work is to demand social justice through social participation and equal opportunity. Through the social work degree program, you will acquire the skills to work with individuals, groups, and the community toward establishing social, economic, and political participation and achieving sustainability.

By graduating with a B.A. in Social Work, you will have gained affiliation with a human rights profession, meaning you will be empowered to advocate for people and their rights. You can then express all of this through the skills you have acquired in your studies as an advocacy representative.

Diverse theories and methods, as well as legal and ethical foundations, enable you to design, justify and reflect on your own professional actions in a well-founded manner. The program thus qualifies you for complex challenges in the fields of social work. It is designed in a generalist way, but gives you the opportunity to set your own priorities and deepen your knowledge through a broad selection of topics in theory-practice deepening and elective seminars.

The social work degree program is particularly suitable for prospective students who want to work with people to find solutions in challenging situations and who want to contribute and develop their personal and social skills.
