Degree in Social Work

240 credits - Faculty of Philosophy and Arts

The general aim of the Degree in Social Work is to train professionals with the necessary core scientific knowledge to enable them to work as professional social workers, to authorise them to use diagnostic, prognostic assessment, dealing with and solving social and relationship problems by applying social work methods for cases, families, groups and communities, and to train them in planning, programming, designing, applying and evaluating social services and policies.

The training is aimed at preparing professionals with skills in social intervention who have a wide understanding of social structures and processes, human behaviour and change. Essential skills in support relationships and micro- and macro-social relationships will be worked on, as well as specific skills to intervene with individuals, families, groups and organisations that find themselves in socially or psychosocially vulnerable and/or difficult situations. The degree combines theory with practical/experiment-based training and learning in classrooms, and external placements supervised and undertaken at the social services units in our region.
