Social Work PLUS Migration and Globalisation

Semester 8 Semester
Winter semester
With admission restriction.


Migration and globalisation are central dynamics of modern societies. Not least in the compulsory year abroad, students learn about migration as a central field of social work and develop a specialisation. International experience and intercultural competences prepare them for their future profession and help to promote the social inclusion of migrants. You can find more detailed information on the degree programme on the website of the Faculty of Social Work (German).


After completing the degree, there are a variety of employment opportunities, especially in social services and institutions with a focus on migration and asylum, as well as in corporate social work. With a view to the European and global market, there is employment potential in non-governmental organisations (NGOs) or in international voluntary work. An international professional career is possible.
Building on the Bachelor's degree, the following Master's programmes are possible:

Social Work: Critically reflective and empirical approaches - Master of Arts


The study programme is designed to last four years. In the first two years, knowledge of theories and methods of social work as well as social and communicative skills are taught - partly in English-language courses and by teachers from abroad. Internships are completed in fields of work that deal with migration, flight or internationality. In the third year, students go abroad. The aim of the stay is to deal with social problems and how to deal with them in the host country, as well as to deepen the focus of their studies at the respective partner university. After returning home the experiences made during the stay will be reflected upon and worked on. A detailed description of the study contents can be found in the module manual (German).
