About Social Work at Mälardalen University

This programme gives you the opportunity to conduct change work and to improve your knowledge in national as well as international social work. Studies at the Master's level implies an opportunity for you to deepen your knowledge and broaden your career opportunities.

Social work concerns the conditions of life, needs and experiences of socially vulnerable people. The point of departure is to try to understand and explain social phenomena and problems at the individual, group and societal levels, and also to create opportunities for change. The understanding of social issues builds on perspectives of systems, power and rights, and the analysis of these is often intersectional. You will develop a practical understanding of problem solving and change processes when it comes to people in socially vulnerable situations.

You will study Social Work against the background of the broader area of health and welfare. Issues concerning equality and participation, professional knowledge and development as well as creativity and innovation are in focus. You will also develop your understanding of leadership, groups and organisations as well as evidence-based praxis and evaluation. The programme is given in English and you will read the courses in Health and Welfare together with students from other Master’s programmes and research studies. The programme runs for two years but may be completed after one year with a Master’s degree of 60 credits. It is also possible to read the programme at half speed.
