Social work

Social work as a field of study:
Social work is a single-discipline study aimed at preparing professionals for the field of social work at all levels. It is organisationally subdivided into the first level of higher education studies (B.Sc.) and the second level of higher education studies (M.Sc.). Studies in Social Work prepare university-educated, independent workers capable of providing, coordinating and directly delivering social care and social services for all groups of the population in need of social assistance.
Social work as a scientific discipline:
Social work is a multidisciplinary field of scientific knowledge that deals with the scientific understanding of social problems - their origins, causes, possible solutions, the question of the responsibility of the citizen and the state, the optimal level and forms of assistance for the individual, group or community.
Social work as a practical field:
Social work as an everyday field of practical implementation by special working methods helps in coping with such socially problematic situations of citizens as: the need for the implementation of family care, including forms of foster family care, assistance in dealing with material need, assistance and support for disabled citizens, assistance and support for senior citizens, assistance and support for unemployed citizens, work with children with behavioural disorders, work with citizens in penitentiary and post-penitentiary care, work with dependent citizens, etc.
The study programme is therefore aimed at acquiring the knowledge and skills that entitle the graduate of the study: to carry out practical social work in institutions, to organise, manage and ensure the development of social work focused in particular on the following sections: social prevention, social counselling, social services, social protection, work in professional multidisciplinary teams, participate in research in social work, monitor, evaluate and propose solutions to serious socio-pathological phenomena in society such as unemployment, poverty, crime, etc.
The scope of study consists of theoretical lectures, preparation focused on psychology, philosophy and ethics, pedagogy, law, sociology, but also on a selected range of information from health-oriented subjects, which form the so-called broader general basis of study and professional subjects aimed at acquiring the necessary knowledge and skills in the field of social services, social counselling and prevention of social protection, planning and development of social network, organization and management of the social assistance system and provision of social care, the theory and methods of social work.
