Foundation and advanced studies

The Master's programme in Social Work is divided into a foundation course and an advanced section of studies.

In the foundation course you will deepen and broaden your knowledge of theories and methods of social work. Zu den fünf Pflichtmodulen gehören Forschungsmethoden (FOM), Wissenschaftstheorie und Forschungsmethoden (WTF), Sozialpolitik im internationalen Vergleich (SIV), Theorie- und Methodenentwicklung der Sozialen Arbeit (TME) sowie Wandel und Innovationen in Organisationen.

In the advanced section of studies, you will specialise in one of the four main areas. In doing so, you deal with scientific working methods and acquire research competencies. Finally, there is a project module and you write your master's thesis.

Further information on the forms of study can be found on the joint website of the four universities (in German).
