Description of the programme
The part-time social work degree programme is the right choice for you if you work in the social sector and would like to expand your specialist knowledge, develop your qualifications and optimise your career prospects.
Studying part-time means that you complete your studies as a working person or as an employed person alongside your job. The main component of your studies are learning units that you can work on at home and on which you will receive professional feedback - including individual coaching sessions. In addition, there are a total of four weekend attendance blocks per semester.
Why enrolling in this programme?
Social work is a growing field that offers you the best career prospects due to the shortage of skilled workers. Social problems in our society are becoming increasingly complex and the tasks of social work more demanding. Social workers are therefore active in fields of action such as:
Working with children, young people and families
Working with people with disabilities
Working with people with mental health problems
Working with the elderly
Working with people in a migration context
Working with people in special social situations
