Department of Social Work
Social work is a scientific discipline, a field of study and a profession. A key focus of social work is understanding and explaining social deprivation and social problems.
It is also about creating opportunities for social change amongst both vulnerable individuals and groups at a more structural level. In this sense, social work as an academic discipline and field of education has a responsibility that extends beyond the academy.
The Department of Social Work offers education at both undergraduate and graduate level. Our programmes and courses are mainly held in Swedish but we offer two courses in English.
