The programme’s objective is training the ability to act professionally in the various practice fields of social work based on scientific knowledge and scientific methods. Its concept is geared towards the rapid changes in the welfare state and the constantly emerging problems, as well as the socially valid claim of quality management in social work. In addition to an undergraduate education, knowledge and skills are taught that stress a behaviour-oriented approach. Social problems are analysed against the background of empirical-scientific findings and methods are used whose effectiveness is testable and verifiable. After the behaviour-oriented approach has long proved to be successful in other countries, the training provides a connection to international practice.
Taught qualifications are oriented towards the Global Standards for Social Work Education and Training.
