The Department of Social Studies trains social workers and child care welfare officers.

The study programmes offered at the department focuses on the dialectic between the theoretical and the practical knowledge, and students will be given practical training in potential and relevant workplaces.

The department offers bachelor programmes in social work and child welfare. Further educational courses offered are multicultural understanding, and guidance and counselling. The department also offers master programmes in social work and change management. 

The department is also proud to offer European Master in Social Work with Families and Children, which is a two year Master's programme of 120 ECTS. The programme has been developed by University Institute of Lisbon (Portugal), University of Gothenburg (Sweden), University of Stavanger (Norway) and Makerere University (Uganda).

The programme has a great potential to respond to needs in skills development, teaching, research and employability in the area of social work with children and families.
