For persons working with social issues the Department of Social Work offers Master’s programme in Social Work. All of the courses in the programme, except for the thesis writing course, can be read as freestanding courses.

This programme builds on the research being carried out at the Department and at our collaborating institutions. You will be sharing in the latest research findings which you will then be able to process and adapt to your own work or to other situations. Our idea is for you to be able to use social work as a knowledge base for more in-depth analyses in your work. Teaching is based on the knowledge gained from your previous university education and your own active pursuit of knowledge. This demands independence of mind and the ability to take own initiatives. Some part of the required reading is in English but instruction is given in Swedish. The programme begins with a course in philosophy of science and ends with a thesis writing course where you will apply scientific methods and theories to the writing of a paper under the tutelage of experienced supervisors. Obligatory is the following: Evidence and Knowledge in Social Work, 7.5 HEC’s At least 30 HEC’s from the Department’s range of Master’s courses, Courses in philosophy of science and research methods amounting to 22.5 HEC’s, Independent Project for the Master’s Degree in Social Work 30 HEC’s. When accepted to the programme you are automatically registered for the first course in philosophy of science, 7.5 HEC’s.
