This programme invites graduates with an academic or practice interest in social work, community work and related fields of practice to achieve a Masters level development of their practice, study and research interests.
The MA has an ongoing research and practice profile in which it applies Western models of social work and community practice to global themes of human need.
For UK applicants, it is the opportunity to develop practice knowledge to Masters level hence progressing practice and academic profiles and portfolios of knowledge. The programme supports students to undertake an action research project in an area of professional interest and expertise.
It is not a social work qualifying award but does develop a professional profile for related areas of social work and community practice.
Practice experience is an optional part of the programme and students with relevant practice experience or a desire to undertake the programme as a purely academic study are welcomed.
For international students it is the opportunity to explore the global discourses of social work and community work whilst learning more about a UK and European model of social work practice. International students again are invited to undertake the programme as a pure academic award or to combine this with practice experience and the construction of a professional practice portfolio.
An honours degree (normally 2:2 and above). International students must hold a qualification equivalent to a UK first or second class hours degree All international students for whom English is not their first language are required to achieve IELTS 6.5 or equivalency
