MA Social Work


Course Description

This graduate entry level course is designed to equip social work students with the knowledge, skills and values necessary for qualification. Upon successful completion of the course students will have met the published professional standards, be able to register with the Health and Care Professional Council (HCPC) and be ready to begin their first year in employment as a registered and qualified social worker.

The MA (Social Work) is an academic award dependent upon successful completion of a Masters level dissertation. There is an ‘exit award’ of PGDip, which allows successful students to register with the HCPC as a qualified and registered social worker. Students, who take this route, will be eligible to complete a dissertation as a part-time student on another award.

The specific educational aims of the course are to develop:

Social work specific skills and prepare students for 170 practice days

A knowledge base to underpin competent and effective practice

The necessary intellectual skills of critical thinking, inquiry and problem solving as applied to academic learning and to practice eEthical, research minded and critically engaged practice

A social work practice committed to social justice, which recognises structural inequality and which seeks to counter-act this.
