  • Special features regarding teaching
    The Bachelor's degree gives the students the professional competence that enables them to act in many of the approximately 240 complex professional fields such as unemployment assistance, youth and family assistance, rehabilitation, victim and criminal assistance, help for people with disabilities, homelessness and social assistance. This includes that they are able to think in a problem-oriented manner, develop and apply solution strategies and independently develop the theoretical and practical knowledge required for their respective field of action.
  • Special features regarding the international orientation
    B.A.: One module "Inter-culturality, Internationality ..." offers numerous courses with an international focus. BA / MA: All courses offer a variety of excursions for students to other European / non-European countries in order to strengthen existing university partnerships, build new ones and promote student mobility. International excursions serve to give students a practical insight into the international context of social work and to prepare graduates for a globalised job market.
  • Exchange universities for stay abroads
    VIA University College, Aarhus, Dänemark; ARCADA, Helsinki, Finnland; University of Central Lancashire, Preston, Großbritannien; Università degli studi di Trieste, Italien; FH Campus Wien, Österreich; University of Lodz, Polen; Jönköping University, School of Health Sciences, Schweden; Universidad de Zaragoza, Spanien.
  • Special features regarding the equipment
    The university works with the Stud.IP learning platform, which teachers integrate into their courses on their own responsibility. There is also the option of using Moodle and LON-CAPA. In addition, appropriate software is available especially for the field of empirical social research (SPSS, MaxQData). A wide range of technical equipment (e.g. sound studio, cameras) is available for media education teaching / research and an age simulator for gerontological teaching / research. Numerous seminar rooms are equipped with large monitors.
  • Special features regarding research and development
    18 professors and 12 teachers for special tasks are available for the course. Both in the Bachelor's and Master's programs in preventive Social Work, students have the opportunity to gain their own research experience. Here, one module is explicitly identified as a research module. In this context, qualification positions have also been set up to promote scientific exchange in theory and practice in and for the region. This also applies to numerous theses in the Master's program in Social Management.
  • Other special features
    The generalist qualification profile enables Bachelor graduates to work independently after a period of familiarisation in work fields in social work that deal with the basic social security, care and education of people with social work-related problems. The qualification profile corresponds to modern labour market requirements, the development and change dynamics of which call for a duality of cross-functional skills. The Master's students are prepared for leadership / management functions.
