The degree program

Social work is a mutual interaction process between the client and social worker. It is, among others, about supporting those looking for help in overcoming their difficulties so that they can solve their problems as independently as possible. Social workers deal with a broad range of subjects, such as social problems, injustice, barriers or discrimination, in theory and practice. The bachelor's degree program Social Work offers a broad scientific basis as well as proximity to the professional practice and mediation of specifically usable methodical knowledge and skills.
The curriculums come from the subjects of social education, education, psychology, sociology, aesthetics, communication, the political/social-administrative/economic elements and principles of social work and specializations of law referring to social work. Additionally, there are freely available modules from the areas of social situations and problems, action and method competence, organization of social services, theories and approaches of social work and inclusion.

Study organization

Examination regulations/degree plan/module manuals/internship rules

Examination regulations (POs) specify the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). Students are automatically subject to the current version of their PO when they matriculate for their first subject-related semester. This means that even if the PO changes during their studies, the original version according to which they matriculated will remain valid (provided that the PO does not expire).
The respective degree plan is the recommended example progress of the studies in individual subjects and is part of a PO.
Supplementary provisions and details for any module to be studied can be found in the module manually (e.g. requirements for taking a written test or content-related information on the modules/events, ...).
The internship rules define the conditions under which the required or optional internships must be completed.

We recommend at least looking at the study schedule for your degree program before the lecture time starts, to ensure that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
