Erasmus Mundus in Social Work with Families and Children

Social work services and research with vulnerable and marginalized children and families are increasing in importance.

A changing world with increased migration and diversity, which affect children and their families, pose challenges on social workers to respond in constructive, creative and positive ways. Social work around the world, also in the Mfamily programme, recognize the need to address these situations by both preparing social work with professionals to provide direct services, contribute to policy development and conduct much needed research into how improvement may be to assist these groups of people.
If you want to study in an international environment with fellow students from all over the world, and learn about social work with vulnerable and marginalised families, this joint Erasmus Mundus master program could be exactly what you are looking for.

Field visits are part of the programme and offer integration of theoretical learning with practical experience and knowledge.
While all modules in Semester 1 contribute the necessary introductory social work content, there are particular connections between Social Research Methods, Research methods (Semester 3) and the Dissertation (Semester 4) which allow students to develop their research skills sufficiently to undertake an independent piece of research. Similarly, Social Work methodology (Semester 1) is essential preparation for undertaking the Child, Youth and Participation (Semester 2) and Children and Families in Adverse Life Situations (Semester 3) which both include Field Placements (Semester 2) and which enable students to develop skills in working with children (Semester 2) and working with vulnerable families (Semester 3).
