The main objective of the Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work is to train professionals in the field of social intervention. Graduates will have the ability to analyse the needs and problems of individuals, groups, and communities with a view to finding answers to the new social structures and processes through social intervention methodologies and techniques typically used in social work.
The specific objectives of the Degree are the following:
a) Inform, guide and advise citizens so that they can know and access the different social services and benefits, which target and highlight barriers, inequalities, cultural and economic marginalization, and injustices in society.
b) Critically and scientifically analyse the structural, political, and economic imbalances of societies.
c) Formulate, implement, and evaluate policies and programmes aimed at enhancing the welfare of people with a view to promoting development and human rights.
a) Acquisition of an ethical commitment to critically analyse their own situation and that of others, while assessing impacts on human communities and showing attitudes consistent with ethical conceptions of the profession.
b) Capacity for creativity and entrepreneurship reflected in the integration of new knowledge and attitudes. This will enable students to formulate, design and manage projects as well as to investigate, analyse, evaluate, and use current knowledge of the best social work practices to review and update their own knowledge about occupational frameworks.
c) Development of communication skills in order to be able to understand and produce correct oral and written texts and autonomously manage information by using ICT in the field of social work. Students will have the ability to work together with individuals, families, groups, organisations, and communities and jointly evaluate with them their needs and circumstances. They will also be able to establish professional relationships by identifying the most suitable form of intervention by assessing needs and options to guide the intervention strategy.
d) Ability to demonstrate professional competence in the practice of social work within the standards of the profession by using professional assertiveness to manage conflicts, identifying them, designing coping strategies, and reflecting on their results.
