Department of Social Work

The Department of Social work aims at providing students with theoretical knowledge around the field of social work and with the accompanied practical experience (through field work) in order to prepare competent and effective social work practitioners. It also aims at helping each individual student develop the skills necessary so that they will be able as professional social workers, both on their own and collectively, to promote social change and empower individuals, families, groups and communities. Through education and research the Department contributes to the dissemination of social work knowledge and values and to the understanding and alleviation of social problems.
