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 structured as a second level of higher education - 4 semesters in full-time form and 6 semesters in external form (M.Sc.). The study in Social Work prepares 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 scope of study consists of theoretical lectures, social-psychological trainings, professional practice, training 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 "social psychology".
