Course Information

As a social worker you will be making a real difference to some of the most marginalised and at-risk people in society. You could work in child protection, with young people in care, older people, people with learning disabilities, physical disabilities, mental health difficulties, homeless people, people with drug dependencies, or with any other group of people with specialist needs. As you help people access essential social services, your interventions can literally be the difference between life and death for extremely vulnerable people.

MA Social Work combines classroom learning and practical experience. You will study the context of social work, legal and policy frameworks, social work theory, psychological and sociological theory, power, discrimination and anti-oppressive practice. You will consolidate this theoretical knowledge with two placements, to put your learning into practice.
