This programme prepares you for social work, social services and social politics by combining a high-level cultural education with advanced professional training.

Over the course of your studies, you develop a strong ability to analyse and interpret social phenomena, especially inequality, social discomfort and processes of exclusion, the social “new rich” and the vulnerable groups that are generated by these contexts, the social rights of citizens and the transformation of welfare, migration and intercultural relations, questions of gender and generalisations, and participation and active citizenship as elements of social innovation.

The skills you gain from the degree equip you to pursue a career in project planning, research, analysis and social initiatives in organisations and institutions operating in the fields of social work, interculturality, social services, labour policy and social and health services.
