Social work is a vocational profession and an academic discipline with the aim of promoting social justice, security and cohesion and empowering people to identify and use their self-competence and resources. A drive to create a fair and just society is at the heart of social work.

This Bachelor’s degree course teaches interdisciplinary and inter-professional competencies which enable students to analyse societal issues such as poverty, cuts to funding for social security and services, social exclusion, crime and the polarisation of urban communities and to explore the human potential for self-development via education, support and state-provided interventions. Engagement with people in a varied range of difficult circumstances and the provision of support to children and young people necessitate personal commitment and persistence alongside your specific expertise.
