Bachelor's degree graduates with at least one year of professional experience (otherwise, our continuing education offer is open to you to enable seamless transition from your Bachelor's to your Master's degree course.)


The Master´s degree programme in Social Work in a Migration Society prepares you for specialist and managerial tasks in which you need not only social work and socio-scientific knowledge but also special, migration-related skills. The dual Master’s programme’s purpose is to sharpen your awareness of social science and migration policy discourses. During your studies, you will learn how to independently develop, implement and evaluate concepts. Your field of work will not be only the "traditional" fields of migration counselling and refugee social work. You will also be an expert in executive positions where a high awareness of intercultural diversity is required. After completing your Master’s, you can take on responsible consulting, development and research assignments with public and independent providers.
