We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Masters degrees in Community Work help postgraduates learn the skills and expertise to work across a range of service provisions that offer support and education to vulnerable and disadvantaged groups of people.
Related subjects include International Social Work and Community Development. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in a relevant subject, such as Social Science or Nursing.
Community Work is vital to many disadvantaged and vulnerable people. Professionals in this field support individuals and groups that find themselves in difficult situations, such as poor finances, unemployment and ill health.
For example, you might study the provision of rehabilitation services for communities with high levels of substance abuse, or sexual health clinics to alleviate the spread of STIs in deprived areas.
Alternatively, you might support communities with high numbers of refugees or asylum seekers, helping them to find work and get used to life in their new surroundings.
Careers vary greatly, but may include work within community centres, foster homes, children’s homes or nursing facilities. You might also wish to explore routes in humanitarian aid, public administration and policy-making.
