International Social Work and Development
About International Social Work and Development
International Social Work and Development takes political, economic and social inter-relations into account, in order to study their meaning for Social Work at (inter)national, regional and local levels. The study program enables students to acquire key competencies in the fields of transnational and intercultural Social Work. It offers valuable insights into complex, mutually depending circumstances of social development, generating evidence-based analytical skills, communication skills and decision-making competences. Focus topics of the study program include: worldwide refugee and migration movements, anti-discrimination practices, exclusion and inclusion processes. Thereby, the protection of human rights serves as the central basis for the reflection of social workers’ actions.
For studying the complete program profound knowledge of the German language is required but a variety of courses and projects, both in winter- and summer semester will be offered in English as well (see the full list below).
