Study structureFoundation and main study in Social Work

The study programme in Social Work is divided into a Bachelor's and Master's degree. Our education philosophy is based on the following principles:

  • Discursive attitude
  • Aptitude of participation and autonomy
  • Understanding of learning as a process of interaction (between teachers and students)
  • Scientifically sound and practice-oriented professional approach.

You can complete the Bachelor's degree in three different ways: full-time study, part-time study, and practice-oriented study. This therefore allows for flexible study planning and takes into account personal, professional or family obligations.

Foundation and main study

The Bachelor's programme in Social Work is modular in design and divided into a foundation and a main study area. In the foundation course, we teach you the basics of social work. You decide on your direction of study, choosing between social work and social pedagogy in addition to selecting a specialisation. Two practical modules (internships) and practical training events form an important part of the Bachelor's programme and you will complete them in different work fields of social work.

Master's degree in Social Work

At Master's level, the foundations acquired in the Bachelor's programme are expanded in an application-oriented manner with greater scientific content. You can complete the Master's degree as a full-time or part-time course of study.
