The Social Work programme of Ludwigshafen University of Business and Society expands and furthers the (technical) knowledge, research skills, and understanding of treatment methodologies acquired during student’s first degree program (Bachelor or Diplom). It enables comprehensive scientific analysis of the operational areas in social work. Students will be able to independently conduct extensive applied research projects in the field of social work.
In particular, the program qualifies students for positions:
- In the areas of project management, development, implementation, and evaluation, especially for responsibility in further conceptual development of operational areas in the field of social work.
- As specialists at social work institutions and associations.
- As research associates and staff employees at social work institutions and associations, non-profit organizations, universities and institutions of higher learning, in social services administration, and in business.
Master’s degree programs open the door to higher civil service positions. A Master’s degree also opens the door to doctoral studies. For Master’s program graduates, the path into doctoral studies has been eased through cooperation agreements with other universities.
