How is the study program structured?

A degree program consists of modules that are defined in the examination regulations and described in more detail in the module handbook. In terms of content and time, it makes sense to study these modules in a certain order. For each degree program, there is a sample study plan that shows you an ideal typical course. If you study in this way, you will be able to complete your studies in the standard period of study. This is not always possible, so there may be individual deviations from the suggested sequence. When planning, you should bear in mind that not every module is offered in the winter and summer semesters and that some modules necessarily build on each other or have other participation requirements. The student advisor will support you in the individual organization of your studies.

The Bachelor's program in Social Work is modularized and consists of 15 modules (including 2 elective modules). The courses of study are aligned with the fields of action of social work.

After the introduction to scientific work and the introduction to the different disciplinary foundations of social work in the first two semesters of study, an integrated practical phase of 768 hours is planned in the third semester. In the further course of study, in-depth modules are located as well as the Bachelor's thesis at the end of the program.

Sample Study Plan

Each of the 15 modules is associated with a certainworkload. 1 credit corresponds to a workload of approx. 30 hours. The entire Bachelor's program comprises 180 credits.
Active participation in the courses as (ungraded) study performance is just as relevant for passing the module as the (graded) examination performance. Ungraded study achievements are e.g.: Preparation of protocols, presentations, seminar designs or text sponsorships.

Examinations are usually in the form of written examinations, term papers or oral examinations.

The program provides a first academic degree and qualifies students both to enter professional employment in social work fields and to pursue a master's degree.
