The degree programme offers scientific and vocational/professional training with a special focus on intercultural competence. This is especially important in connection with Austria´s demographics, which are strongly influenced by migration. Social workers encounter clients with migration background in all their fields of activity. Intercultural competence is, therefore, a cross-sectional type of competence and not solely an additional qualification relevant for employees in migration-specific service institutions.
