Course content

At the heart of social work is the promotion of human rights and social justice, and the protection of individuals and their families.

It aims to bring about change through working in partnership with individuals, families and communities often at the point of distress and vulnerability.

Our two-year, full-time masters degree is designed for first degree students who wish to become registered professional social work practitioners.

As a registered social worker, you’ll work within health and social care teams, and with partner agencies, from the police to housing services.

You’ll often be in situations that are complex and challenging but you’ll help to bring about positive changes for individuals, families and communities.

You’ll consider topics such as how welfare is delivered across society, the psychological and sociological factors that impact on life, how the law can be used to safeguard and protect vulnerable people in society, and the ethical considerations for social workers.

It can be difficult to appreciate the difference social workers make until you’ve experienced professional practice – and that’s why you’ll complete work-based placements in both years of this course.

When you graduate, you can apply for professional registration with the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) to practice as a social worker.
