Since the Bachelor of Arts in Social Work (Hons) programme from University of Malta is generic in nature it seeks to provide students with knowledge, skills and abilities which will lend themselves useful in any practice setting.
In addition, the programme is the only route in Malta through which individuals can enter the social work profession, and therefore an important aim of the programme is to expose students to different social work settings in Malta and Gozo. This is primarily done through the placements which students carry out during the course, but also through other tasks set by different study units.
