We offer a 3-year Bachelor in Social Work at Free University of Bozen-Bolzano that explores the main societal issues of our times: migration, poverty, mental health issues, addiction, disability. You will study these issues in depth and learn the most recent methodologies to tackle them.
You will acquire scientific knowledge and the skills required to fulfill the needs of citizens more effectively and to make a real contribution in addressing the most complex socio-political issues. Speaking German and English, besides Italian - the three languages in which the modules are taught - will enable you to be more sensitive towards cultural and linguistic difference.
The graduates work in organisations of social support for children, young people and families, for seniors, for people with disabilities or with substance dependency, for refugees and migrants as well as for people at risk of marginalisation.
Important are also fields like women shelters, prevention of violence and dependency, rehabilitation and resocialisation, areas of social economy and social planning. More and more opportunities are opening up in the professional accompaniment of self-help initiatives, community projects and other voluntary initiatives.
