BSc (Hons) Social Work
The aim of this program is to enable the learners to earn a high level, specialist
qualification, while also acquiring a skill set and expertise that could benefit any
individual. In this program, learners will acquire the basic tenets in social work. There
are multiple avenues in social work which require social workers to take the time to
understand the conditions of their clients and work to improve their conditions in
effective and safe ways. They may need to assist people with everyday issues like
personal, family, and relationship issues. Sometimes they may be involved in helping
clients with disabilities, diseases, or social issues like substance abuse or
unemployment. Families with domestic conflicts can also turn to social workers for
relief and guidance during difficult times. Social workers are thus trained in areas such
in a particular service or setting, like child, family or school social work.
