Social Work as a Human Rights Profession (MSW)
The study program is aimed at practitioners in educational and social institutions who (want to) recognise human rights as the umbrella and basis of their own profession.
In cooperation with the ASH and the EHB as well as the KHSB, the Institute for Rehabilitation Sciences at the HU, the Otto-von-Guericke Universität – UNESCO Chair for Human Rights, the Institute for Sociology at the Universität Basel and the Deutsche Institut für Menschenrechte Berlin, the degree can be obtained through a part-time, four-semester program followed by a Master's thesis. The aim of the program is to train professionals who can incorporate and implement human rights issues in teaching, in domestic and/or international practice projects and within their own organisations.
