Program content

The programme

Social work concerns the conditions of life, needs and experiences of socially vulnerable people. The point of departure is to try to understand and explain social phenomena and problems at the individual, group and societal levels, and also to create opportunities for change. The understanding of social issues builds on perspectives of systems, power and rights, and the analysis of these is often intersectional. You will develop a practical understanding of problem solving and change processes when it comes to people in socially vulnerable situations.

You will study Social Work against the background of the broader area of health and welfare. Issues concerning equality and participation, professional knowledge and development as well as creativity and innovation are in focus. You will also develop your understanding of leadership, groups and organisations as well as evidence-based praxis and evaluation. The programme is given in English and you will read the courses in Health and Welfare together with students from other Master’s programmes and research studies. The programme runs for two years but may be completed after one year with a Master’s degree of 60 credits.

Future and jobs

A Master’s degree in Social Work within the field of health and welfare will considerably improve your skills and develop your current or future work within the national and international welfare sector. The programme will also give you new perspectives in work with clients and will open the way to continued studies at research level.
