The Social Work degree at Lincoln combines rigorous academic study with extensive practice-based experience, aiming to equip you with the personal and professional attributes required for a career in social work.
Social work is a uniquely demanding but rewarding profession. Those who work in the sector have the opportunity to change people's lives for the better. They empower individuals and promote social justice by intervening at the points at which people, policy and society interact.
Social workers must make sound judgements, often in conditions of tension, complexity and uncertainty. These decisions can have profound implications for the individuals, groups and communities they aim to support.
Students have the opportunity to learn how to communicate effectively with a variety of stakeholders and are encouraged to see social work within its broader, multidisciplinary context. Practice placements form a key component of this programme and you will have the opportunity to benefit from the School's well-established links with regional and national agencies. Students may incur additional costs relating to placements. These are outlined in the Features Tab.
