SOCIAL WORK - A RESEARCH-ORIENTED MASTER’S DEGREE PROGRAMME
Professional, knowledge-based action, proof of effectiveness, empirical foundations – these keywords point to the increasing importance of research in social work – to justify action taken in this field, to provide a basis for the knowledge about changed life and problem situations of the people for whom the work is undertaken, and about institutional support processes and changed organisational framework conditions.
And not least important, there must be critical analysis of the effects of social changes on the field of social work.
You will obtain the tools needed to assess and influence developments in social work on an empirical basis. The research-oriented Master does not relate to specific fields of activity, but prepares you to be able to reflect on all areas of social work.
