The degree program
Social Work is a mutual interaction process between the client and the social worker. It is, among other things, about supporting those seeking advice in the event of difficulties so that they can solve their problems as independently as possible. Social workers theoretically and practically deal with a broad range of issues, such as social problems, injustice, barriers or discrimination. The bachelor's program in Social Work offers a broad scientific basis as well as proximity to professional practice and the teaching of specifically usable methodological knowledge and skills.
The curriculum is derived from the subjects of social pedagogics, education, psychology, sociology, esthetics, communication, the basic political/social-administrative/economic elements of social work and special fields of law related to social work. This is complemented by freely selectable modules from the fields of social situations and problems, capacity to act and methodological competence, organization of social services, theories and approaches of social work and inclusion.
The degree program requires two internships to be completed. Internships prior to starting the degree program cannot be credited to the studies and are not required.
State recognition can be applied for after successfully completing the bachelor’s degree.
Graduates of the B.A. in Social Work are qualified for work in many different fields. Career opportunities exist, for example, in the fields of counselling and information, in the organization of learning processes (in education, training, teaching), in treatment (e.g. social therapy) and supervision, management and leadership and many other fields.
Organization of the degree program
Subject examination regulations/degree plans/module handbooks/internship regulations
Subject examination regulations (FPOs) define the basic structures of a degree program (e.g. admission requirements and contents to be studied). The current version of an FPO automatically applies to students when enrolling in the first semester of study. This means that, even if the FPO changes during the course of your studies, the original version in effect at the time of enrollment still applies (provided that said FPO does not expire).
The respective degree plan contains the recommended exemplary course of studies in the individual subjects and is part of an FPO.
Supplementary regulations and detailed information on each module to be studied can be found in the module handbooks (e.g. requirements for taking a written examination or information about the content of modules/courses, …).
The internship regulations define the conditions under which the compulsory or optional internships must be completed.
We recommend that, as a minimum, you take a look at the degree plan of your degree program before the start of the lecture period so that you know which modules are intended for the start of your studies.
