Social work forms the umbrella for various professions in the social sector. After completing their Bachelor’s degree, graduates are trained social workers, social educators or socio-cultural animators and take on important tasks in the professional world. For example, they will work in social services, advice centers, in child and adult protection, in socio-educational institutions, in schools or in neighborhood and cultural meeting places with children, young people, adults and older people. The Master’s degree program builds on this knowledge and also teaches political, economic and social aspects of social work.
