Professional social work fosters social change, social development and social cohesion as well as the empowerment and liberation of individuals. Principles such as social justice, human rights, societal responsibility and respect for diversity are elementary in social work. Social work assists people in meeting the challenges of life by applying a variety of scientific methods and theories. The Bachelor’s degree programme in social work offers interdisciplinary training for future experts, who will be able to counsel, accompany and support service users, as well as plan aid processes.
