Are you someone who is interested in social issues and people’s life situations? Then social work may be just what you’re looking for. Social work is a social science field dealing with the causes and consequences of social problems on individual, group and societal level. Central to the field are different perspectives on social issues and processes of change, including an international comparative one. Important points of departure for social work are theories of human behavior, social systems and human interaction with the environment. Social work studies will provide you with the tools to analyze different types of social interventions aimed at handling and alleviating social problems. Social work studies also give you the tools to design interventions for the prevention and remediation of social problems―interventions needed both in work with individuals, families, groups and the local community as well as in development, planning and research tasks in other parts of the society.
