Qualification Requirements

The MA in Social Work and Social Administration program is based on the credit accumulation system of study. Students must accumulate 90 ECTS credits in order to graduate. The program comprises a taught part (formal classes), a field experience (minimum 600 hours practice) in a social welfare agency (public, Local Authorities, NGO, Not Profit Organisations, clinical settings, etc) as well as a research part (Master Dissertation). Students are required to complete the taught part before undertaking the Master Dissertation.

The first semester is considered a foundation semester and two introduction courses taught are common for students of both specializations, while three courses are specific to the specialization the student will choose. Courses in the second semester have the same structure: two of them are common for students of both specializations, while two courses are specific to one specialization; also, students have to undertake Field Work I (300 hours). In the third semester students have to undertake Field Work II (300 hours), the dissertation and one common course of both specializations in advanced social research methods.
