Special features regarding teachingSocial Work, like Childhood Education and Health, is without doubt among the key social topics of the future. The Faculty of Social Work and Health, which offers a course programme that is unique in Germany, contributes to the development of these future themes with its research and development work, both in Schleswig-Holstein and on a wider scale. A close connection to professional practice is part of the department’s self-understanding, as is the further development of the profile of social work in science and practice.
Special features regarding the international orientationPromotion of internationalism has been enshrined conceptually, such as through the function of a representative for international affairs at the department. There are numerous international contacts with universities and institutions of social work. Regular international excursions of teachers and students are planned systematically and funded through the department’s budget. Student work placements and semesters abroad are encouraged, as are professors’ international activities.
