Degree Programme in Social Work

Degree Programme in Social Work

Social work is a subject in social sciences concerned with issues of welfare among individuals and groups, social problem situations and the related change processes. Studies in social work combine aspects from the social and behavioural sciences in order to understand and alleviate inequality and the problems of individuals and society pertaining to interaction. In teaching and research there is collaboration with the degree programmes in psychology, logopedics, and social sciences, among others. The Degree Programme in Social Work implements the Strategy of the University of Tampere by educating people who understand the world and change it.
Education in social work can look back on a long history at the University of Tampere. The education equips experts for social worker tasks and for administrative, development, research and teaching tasks in the social field and more widely in society, including international tasks. Social work professionals work largely in the public sector in tasks in social and health care and in multi-professional networks: with children, families, adults and elderly people. Changes in the service system and an internationalizing world constantly confront social work with new challenges and new prospects.

Teaching

The majority of teaching is in Finnish, but the programme offers some of the courses in English. Information about the courses in English can be found in the Teaching Schedules.
