Social work

As an academic subject, Social Work covers studies of social vulnerability and its causes and consequences for individuals, groups and society, as well as studies of the practice of social work, including interventions at individual, organisational and societal levels.

Our profile is interdisciplinary and includes subjects such as Social Work, Sociology, Political Science, Psychology, Epidemiology and Societal Law. A dominating theme is that of urban issues, which corresponds well with the subject’s degree programme, “Social Work Programme, Urban Profile”. Other prominent themes are children and young people, schools, civil society, health, alcohol and drugs. The subject includes studies of actions that aim to lessen, eradicate and prevent social vulnerability.
