Master of Arts "Social Work as a Human Rights Profession" (MA-SWHR)

International Master Program
In the course of the transnationalization of social problems in the globalized world, the importance of human rights as a strong instrument in the field of social work becomes more significant. Through the MA-SWHR program you will gain, develop and improve a general professional self-conception and receive a science-based theory of action, intervention as well as a solid inside of principle of profession’s code of ethic: all in relation to social work as a discipline and profession.

The course of study will be of most interest to individuals who are professionally active or have an academic interest in social work or in an area related to human rights. Social work and human rights are frequently encountered when working with vulnerable groups such as children or migrants respectively when working on issues related to the right to health or to social problems like poverty, social exclusion or discrimination with regard to a person's gender and/or race.

The program shall give you feasible tools through a hybrid learning program combining classroom teaching (in blocks) and modules with internet-based blended learning and a profound focus on research. The M.A. program requires a full-time commitment from students. The modules are organized in blocks as the teaching staff is only partly based in Berlin and Germany. It consists of two weeks in-class teaching and two weeks virtual blended learning for the A modules, for the B and C modules one week in class-teaching & one week blended learning. Almost all other professors are permanent staff members at our partner universities in Sweden, Scotland and Slovenija. The average of student effort required includes the time spent attending lectures and seminars as well as the time dedicated to independent study and preparation of oral and written assignments. Please check the current schedule for further details.
