Course summary

Social Work is a vocational subject, and the purpose of these degrees is to educate and train students to become qualified social workers - people who are in the frontline, and part of society's efforts to cope with many community and personal problems. Social workers play key roles in the delivery of services to care for people of all ages who are in need. They also exercise formal legal powers in response to many of society's problems such as child abuse, vulnerable adults, mental health problems, and working with offenders. The School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work is one of the leading centres of social work education in the UK, with The Times Good University Guide 2010 ranking Queen's University's Social Work education first out of the 74 universities in the UK offering the degree. In the delivery of our courses we are joined by a wide range of agency partners, who are an integral part of the development and delivery of these degrees. Our degrees are a mixture of academic study and assessed practice placements, which are supported by practice teachers in a variety of local social work agencies.
