About the course

The MA in Comparative and International Social Work is one of a very small number of programmes in the UK that focuses on social work in an international context.

The course explores comparative approaches to social work policy and practice in international and local contexts. You will develop research skills allowing you to investigate real-world issues in social work. Practice-based learning lets you apply your theoretical knowledge to practical challenges of leadership and delivery.

Through multi-disciplinary and cross-national study you will gain in-depth knowledge of key social work theories and current issues, preparing you to contribute to global debates and lead change in policy and practice.
