Social workers have a responsibility to promote the rights of powerless people, protect the vulnerable and disadvantaged and address the causes and effects of offending behaviour.
During the Social Work (Hons) degree from the University of Strathclyde, you'll have the opportunity to work/study abroad, thanks to our well-established links with the University of Greensboro, North Carolina in the United States and an exchange agreement with the University of Malta.
Qualified social workers are in demand in a number of areas, especially children and family services. They are now among the best paid public sector workers.
Graduates from this course work in all levels of social work, including senior management positions, local authorities and in the independent sector.
Many graduates remain in contact with the University after securing employment, some acting as placement mentors for future students.
