The MA Social Work degree, accredited by the Health and Care Professions Council, offers a dual qualification, academic and professional, that will enable you to become a registered social worker.
We aim to ensure that our students understand the theoretical foundations of social work, rooted in psychology and sociology; that they understand the social policy and legal context, especially the statutory provisions regarding child care, mental health and adult care; and that they are skilled in working with individuals, families, groups, fellow social workers and other professionals.
By the end of this programme you will have acquired the knowledge and skills to start work as a confident and competent 'beginning social worker'.
